A staged presentation of the work of Lou Bullock (U.S. Army ‘55 – ‘57).
WHO: Lou Bullock, the Veterans/Actors of Bedlam's Veteran Outreach Class, and Stephan Wolfert, Bedlam's Director of Veteran Outreach.
WHAT: A chance to experience and celebrate the dramatic richness found in the writings of our own Lou Bullock, as performed by the Veterans/Actors of Bedlam Outreach.
WHEN: Monday, November 21st
6:30-7:00pm: A very informal “meet and greet” between the Veterans/Actors, Bedlam Company Members and YOU.
7-8:30pm: The presentation, featuring scenes from Shakespeare and personal reflections on the themes of homecoming and infancy.
WHERE: The Sheen Center,
18 Bleecker Street, New York, NY 10009.
WHY: At Bedlam, we believe in the power of the performing arts to help reintegrate Veterans into civilian life, and to help them articulate and understand their experiences through the communal process of making theatre.
Our "Open Houses" are an opportunity for Veterans and civilians to engage in an open dialogue toward bringing a deeper understanding between these two communities.
The most successful Veteran reintegration programs include camaraderie, communalization of trauma, and Veteran/civilian integration. Bedlam’s Monday night classes provide the opportunity for camaraderie-building as well as the communalization of trauma, but you provide the opportunity for Veteran/civilian integration just by showing up.

I AGREE to be a part of a safe, secure space where we may “speak what we feel, and not what we aught to say” (from Shakespeare’s King Lear); I also agree to keep what others may share inside of the room.
