Love & Pain vs. Past & Present
When a beloved World War I Veteran is forced to confront his son in law, a Viet Nam Veteran, about the horrors witnessed in combat he is reminded of his own reoccurring nightmares. Coming face to face with their own terrors and each other, the two men must find common ground before irreparable damage is done to those they love most.
Hurricane Season is a gripping story of grief, compassion, and finding a way to move on. Set in the Rio Grande Valley in 1970, the play explores Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, before its official diagnosis, and its effects on a multi-cultural family infected by war and their struggle to love through their grief. But at what cost?
Hurricane Season was a nominee for the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival’s David Mark Cohen award, as well as the National Partners American Theatre Playwriting award.
