This award-winning play, a tribute to Vietnam Veterans, tells true stories about the effects of the Vietnam War and the subsequent homecoming on veterans and their families.
The critically acclaimed play originally opened in June, 1991 at Playhouse West Acting School & Repertory Theater, and ran for 25 consecutive years to sold out audiences in Los Angeles before closing in the summer of 2016. Over the years the cast included many stars of film and TV, including James Franco, Ashley Judd, Mark Pellegrino, Jim Parrack, Shawnee Smith, Heather Morris, Michael Trevino, Nestor Carbonell, Jonathan Lipnicki, Charisma Carpenter, Jared Ward and others.
TONY SAVANT, the creator, co-writer, director, producer and 22-year Los Angeles cast member of “Welcome Home, Soldier”, directs and acts in this east coast production. Savant directed a production in West Chester in the summer of 2014, and in Philadelphia in spring and summer of 2015. All performances sold out and received rave reviews from audiences, especially from veterans, who absolutely love this play! This is a must-see play for veterans and their families!
The cast is comprised exclusively of members of Playhouse West-Philadelphia, the east coast branch of the school Mr. Savant founded in 2012.
