In May we round out the regular season with Flags, shop a play by Jane Martin, that follows a typical American family who loses a son in Iraq. As we reach the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Falcon presents Flags as a tribute to all those who’ve given their lives in defense of our freedom. Flags is not your traditional remembrance play, however, it is a though-provoking story about the different forms that freedom can take. The play explores the ways in which the media color our perception of events and how events, large and small, can easily pull the focus of a nation away from the war and the brave soldiers who are fighting it.
Performance Dates: May 6, 7, 13, 14, 20 & 21, 2011
