Staged Reading of Lorca Eats Bullets
Friday, December 6, 2019, 8:00pm
A mad-cap new play juxtaposing the trials of war through the lens of the young adults conscripted to fight the Battle of Stalingrad and the Vietnam War. The play deals with antiwar themes and focuses on a team of Russian female snipers as they journey through battles with the Wehrmacht, Giant Hitler and Stalin monsters, and Baby Messerschmitts.

SPIRIT OF 1969 SEASON
This staged reading is a part of our “Spirit of 1969 Season” where we are excited to have plays that touch on the spirit of 1969 with shades of the Stonewall riots launching the LGTBIQ+ movement, Woodstock, the Vietnam War, Love/Peace, Racial Tension, Disability Awareness, the Cold War, and Identity.
Nick López, writer and director of LORCA EATS BULLETS, was joined by cast members to discuss the upcoming staged reading on WJFF Culture Club with Harold Tighe. Listen below!
