Nov 15th through Dec 7th

By Laurel McKenzie

Directed by Jordan Wilson

Afghanistan/Wisconsin is a collection of stories from service members and their spouses. These stories come directly from their lips and are reborn on our stage.  We can only imagine what it is like to serve in the longest war in American history, but these stories are from those who lived it.

About the Director: Jordan Wilson

Jordan is excited to make her Three Brothers directing debut with Afghanistan/Wisconsin. Jordan was last seen on stage as Joby in Anton in Show Business. When she is not on stage Jordan can be found working as the Co-Box Office Manager or backstage designing, running tech or filling where needed. Jordan would like to thank Josh, Caroline, and Rick for welcoming her 2 years ago to the theater, her family, friends, and boyfriend Troy for their support along this crazy journey.
