New York City Theater Production Raises Curtain on Modern-Day Tragedies … Veterans Suicide Epidemic

Names of the Dead explores the heartbreaking reality of PTSD and suicide amongst our veterans.

The story takes place on the night Jared, a psychologically tortured Iraq War veteran, has decided to take his own life.  Before pulling the trigger, he makes one final call for help to a VA crisis hotline reaching Hope, the only person who may be able to save him. 

Jared finds solace in her voice and can finally confront the demons that have been haunting him since the war. 

Through the course of their conversation, interspersed with flashbacks and hallucinations, Jared’s story unfolds. 

Names of the Dead examines fragility versus strength in the human mind and reminds us that the casualties of war are not only those left on the battlefield.
