​Join dramaturg David Robbins in conversations with the four military veterans who wrote one-act plays that were to receive their world premieres as part of Firehouse’s WAR IN PIECES festival in September 2020, but had to be postponed due to the pandemic until the fall of 2021.

​The conversations will be live at Firehouse for an audience of 6 people and will also be live streamed.

The playwrights will talk about their experiences writing the plays in Robbins’ Mighty Pen Project at the Virginia War Memorial, as well as the real-life events that inspired their plays. You’ll get an insider’s view of the process of writing and developing a script, and also get to know four extraordinary veterans. Each WIP conversation will include a Q&A period from the live and remote audience members.
