A moving father-son story of Vietnman veteran Thomas Bird’s relationship with his World War II veteran dad and their mutual healing from the traumas of battle and the Holocaust. In the play, Bird travels to Mauthausen concentration camp to honor the memory of his father, an Army doctor who cared for survivors upon the camp’s liberation. As Bird conjures the spirits of his father and the camp’s victims, he recalls his own wartime experiences in Vietnam along with a long-held secret his dad revealed just before his death. In “bearing witness” himself, Tom is finally able to find some peace. June 1 – June 17: Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Odyssey Theatre, 2055 S.
