Merrimack Repertory Theatre to Close Season with HOME OF THE BRAVE
by BWW News Desk - Apr 4, 2016

Merrimack Repertory Theatre will close out its season in spectacular fashion with the world premiere of Lila Rose Kaplan's farce 'Home of the Brave.'

Maybe dressed as ninjas. Or in their underwear. Yet at its core, 'Home of the Brave' remains a big-hearted love letter to the American family. MRT's Artistic Director Sean Daniels directs. (more...)
