Photo Flash: First Look at South Bend Civic Theatre's STICKS AND BONES
Written by acclaimed playwright David Rabe and directed by Scott Jackson, STICKS AND BONES is a darkly humorous story of a "perfect" family dealing with the horrors of war's aftermath when their eldest son returns home scarred physically and mentally. Winner of the Tony Award for its original production in 1971, the play continues to resonate as a scathing look at the cost of war on family.

Ozzie and Harriet and their two sons appear to have the perfect life, the kind of family shown on classic TV sitcoms in 1968. But when eldest son David returns home from war, the cracks in their ideal home are exposed and sharp truths and painful realities force a new look at family. On the 40th anniversary of this groundbreaking and controversial play, SBCT presents a play that continues to resonate for American families confronting the specter of war brought to their doorstep.
