HOMECOMING 1972 at Chicago Dramatists

HOMECOMING 1972
by Robert Koon
Directed by Kimberly Senior
http://www.chicagodramatists.org/homecoming-1972


In 1972, Frank limped out of the war in Vietnam and back into the world. In his small, Midwestern hometown, he finds that his once-mundane world of football, cars and Sunday dinners has turned suddenly strange and threatening.

Caught between the realities of war and the retrospective absurdities of his old life, he stares down the iconic celebration of returning local heroes – the high school homecoming game.
