“PTSD” reviewed in Village Voice

In News, Plays on June 3, 2009 at 9:26 PM

“The highlight of Program A is Tommy Smith’s PTSD, an account of a young man’s return from the Iraq War. The titular post-traumatic stress disorder turns out to have less to do with the soldier’s nonexistent battle experiences than the shattered relationships he left back home. William Carden stages the piece with appropriate hyper-realism; at one point, an actor cooks an actual breakfast onstage. All four cast members seem to plumb the depths of their expertly shaded characters—often wordlessly. The coda to this rich playlet contains only about six lines, yet is one of the most eloquent pieces of theater I’ve seen in a long time.” — Trav S.D., Village Voice
