VIDEO: George Street Playhouse presents AMERICAN HERO

Watch the trailer for the powerful drama, American Hero, on stage now through February 25 at George Street Playhouse on the Cook Campus of Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ.

Captain Rob Wellman's perfect life starts to unravel when a fellow veteran seeking justice shows up threatening to expose a hidden past. From the Christopher Demos-Brown, author of last season's American Son, this probing drama shines a light on how America honors its veterans, the corrupting effect of awards and commendations, and questions what it truly means to be a hero. American Hero joins American Son and a yet-to-be titled new work to create a trilogy of plays that explore American injustice. American Hero is the recipient of the Steinberg Award Citation from the American Theatre Critics Association.

Directed by George Street Playhouse Artistic Director David Saint, American Hero stars John Bolger, Kally Duling, Laiona Michelle and Armand Schultz.

Tickets range from $40 to $65.

American Hero is sponsored by The Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation.
