We have free tickets to the Vietnam War play ‘The Things They Carried’ — Join us!


We have a limited number of free tickets to give away for Wednesday evening’s performance of “The Things They Carried” — a powerful play about the Vietnam War.

The performance begins at 7 pm on Wednesday April 11 at the Florida Studio Theatre, Bowne’s Lab, which is located on the corner of Coconut and 1st Street in Sarasota.

I’m going along with some other veterans.

Please come join us!

Here’s what they’re saying about the play:

Based on the literary classic, The Things They Carried is the powerful telling of Tim O’Brien’s personal journey from his innocent years in rural Minnesota to the jungles of Vietnam. A one-person tour-de-force, this play explores the lines between truth and reality as fact and fiction blur in this unforgettable soldier’s journey.

NOTE: The Things They Carried contains graphic descriptions of war violence, very mild sexual content, and use of explicit language. Audience discretion is advised.
