The New Theatre at Firehouse will partner with the Virginia War Memorial Foundation on War In Pieces, four original one-act plays written by Virginia veterans and the spouse of a veteran.

War in Pieces will open on March 15th, 2024, in the VMI Alumni Hall at the Virginia War Memorial, 621 S Belvidere St, Richmond, VA 23220, and will have eight performances running through March 24th, 2024.

The plays that are to be produced in War in Pieces were developed through the Mighty Pen Project, the Virginia War Memorial Foundation's 12-week long university-level writing classes offered for free to veterans and their families. New York Times bestselling author and founder of the MPP David L. Robbins teaches the classes. He is directing one of the plays.

“The writers in the Mighty Pen classes have put some powerful words on the page, all based on their own experiences,” Robbins said. “Breathing life into these stories for the stage has yielded some captivating and memorable theater.”

Robbins added, “Firehouse Theatre produced the inaugural War in Pieces production, and I am thrilled that we can collaborate again. Through this partnership, we hope to elevate the voices of veterans in Virginia and nationwide.”
