The Boys of Winter

Half a world away from Vietnam three high school seniors are playing hockey...for their lives.

The year is 1966. The place is Minnesota. Upon graduation they will either go to college or end up in Vietnam. Watch the story of these boys and those around them as their chances dwindle and the miles to war become fewer.

This powerful story was written by three playwrights: Eric Small, Dean B. Kaner and, locally, Barry Brodsky who served in the Army during the Vietnam War and is currently the Director of the Veterans Upward Bound program at U.Mass-Boston

The Boys of Winter. The site pretty much tells it all. At least all the whos, whats, and whens.

I'm still too early in the process. Just reading and rereading the script. And I know that whatever I'm thinking now will bear absolutely no resemblance on what I do on the stage in September, but it's all part of the process.
