THE EQUUS EFFECT ANNUAL CELEBRATION WELCOMES NOTED ACTOR AND PLAYWRIGHT STEPHAN WOLFERT

We’re honored to include Stephan Wolfert’s powerful performance of ‘Cry Havoc!’, his brilliant one-man play, as part of our anniversary program. He’s a veteran who has lived the experience of trying to come home … to re-connect with society … and by using his talents as writer and actor, he makes the experience real for all of us.

‘Cry Havoc!’ is powerful theater because of it’s ability to bear witness – this is what I saw, this is what I experienced, this is what I think it means, this is why you should care.  Boston Globe

‘Cry Havoc!’ explores the psychological trauma of war – both on and off the battlefield. Wolfert traded his military career for a life in the theatre after seeing a production of Shakepeare’s Richard III.  He recounts gripping tales of his military service, weaving this personal narrative with lines from some of Shakepeare’s most famous speeches.  Broadway World

‘Cry Havoc!’ is an extraordinary and poignant autobiographical play … that makes the plight of the veteran ancient and the words of Shakespeare contemporary.  Dan Dwyer

We are most grateful to the John C. Griswold Foundation for underwriting this performance.
