Last Out: Elegy of a Green Beret
About Last Out: Elegy of a Green Beret
Army Green Beret Danny Patton is a modern-day warrior fighting battles that range from tribal Afghanistan to his own living room. As the corrosive gears of war begin to rip apart his family, his integrity, and his soul, Danny is thrust into his final, eternal mission. On the other side, with Valhalla beckoning, he discovers that combat can be fueled by vengeance or by love… it just depends which price you are willing to pay. You’ve heard the war stories of the “first in.” This is the untold story of the "Last Out."
Taking two years to complete, "Last Out" is based on true stories of modern war told from a downrange and home-front perspective, performed with an all veteran and veteran-family cast and musical score. "Last Out" is a theatrical experience intended to help civilians better understand the cost of combat to our veterans and their families, and to help warriors utilize the power of story to let go of their pain, healing the wounds of war.
"Last Out" is a play about war...and the cost of war. There will be scenes of combat, sounds of combat, flashing lights, wooden weapons, and profanity. Again, this is a play about war. The performance will be followed by a talk-back with the cast.
1 hr and 15 minutes, followed by talk-back with the cast
