Young Audiences New York's Literature to Life®

The Things They Carried by Tim OBrien

Considered one of the preeminent pieces of Vietnam War literature, actors will perform five of the short stories found in the book that will explore the complex issues of war and the universal struggle of a soldier. Surrounded by a pre and postshow discussion, your students will explore important themes including ethics, making choices and the impact of violence. 

The show contains profanities taken verbatim from the book.
