Intimate, funny, and fierce, Last of the Boys by renowned local playwright Steven Dietz is the story of Vietnam War vet Ben and his battle with the ghosts of his past. In the stark beauty of California’s Central Valley, Ben’s ghosts are suddenly made flesh when his unpredictable war buddy Jeeter shows up and old wounds are peeled back open. Called “blisteringly good” by the Chicago Sun Times, Last of the Boys features a brilliant ensemble cast.
“A complex, moving play.”
