Did you miss Telling: Minnesota at the Guthrie Theater? Well, The Minnesota Humanities Center is taking it on the road. First stop Carleton College!
Telling: Minnesota is the twelfth original production of The Telling Project. Like all of its predecessors, Telling: Minnesota has been created through an intensive process of interviews with veterans and their family members, scripting from these interviews, performance training, and rehearsal. The individuals on stage are Minnesota military veterans performing their own stories of service. A facilitated discussion led by Ryan Schmidt and a reception hosted by Carleton College will follow the performance. Veteran actors include: Angie R. Batica, Ken Plant, J.A. Moad, Ted John, Vince Undis, and Stu O Rawling.

The Veterans Play Project
The Veterans' Play Project

Directed by Leah Cooper
November 15-24, 2013 (Preview November 14)
Performed at the Base Camp on the grounds of Fort Snelling
In an effort to strengthen a network of creative voices statewide, the Minnesota Humanities Center and Mixed Blood Theatre have joined forces in promoting a new production, “The Veterans Play Project.”
A world premiere based on personal stories of veterans from all conflicts and on all sides, collected in years of story circles. The War in the Gulf of Truth comes to a head when four worlds are forced to conform to a two-way system. Playwright Anton Jones tracks four parallel worlds of military people, with four belief systems and sets of rules, from four branches, and from four conflicts. This series of journeys begins at home and carves a path through perceived safety zones, corridors of honesty, heavens, and hells.
