For Services Rendered
About For Services Rendered
Years ahead of its time, W. Somerset Maugham’s 1933 landmark play shows the impact of war on civilian life and suggests that the ideals of honor, patriotism and glory mean nothing if we show no care for the victims of conflict. A blistering portrait of the devastating aftermath of war and its effect on its survivors, "For Services Rendered" continues the Griffin Theatre Company's exploration and mission to unearth rarely produced classic plays from the past ("Men Should Weep," "London Wall" and "Time and the Conways") with relevance to today and introduce them to Chicago audiences for the first time.
