North Dakota theater to tell US veterans’ stories on stage

GRAND FORKS, N.D. — The Greater Grand Forks Community Theatre will help bring history alive next month by performing the words of U.S. veterans.

“Warrior Words” began as a writing workshop in five North Dakota five in 2014 and 2015. Forty-four veterans from different generations representing World War II up through the current war in Afghanistan shared their stories on paper.

The workshop was funded by the North Dakota Humanities Council. The theater group then commissioned North Dakota writers to adapt the essays into stage monologues. Nine of those veterans’ works will be performed and during a three-city tour in November.

The tour begins at 7 p.m. Nov. 6 in Minot. Other dates include Nov. 7 in Bismarck and Nov. 8 in Dickinson.
