Six Years a West Coast Premier by Sharr White
This West Coast Premiere provides an intimate journey to an unspoken side of the Greatest Generation, chronicling Meredith and Phil Grangers struggles to survive together through the boom of the 1950s, the hope and unbearable losses of the 1960s, and the resounding search for redemption following the Vietnam War.
In Six Years playwright Sharr White questions this silence, examines the psychic damage that lies behind the public story that focuses on the heroics and not the scars of the battlefield. Whites play is concentrated on one GI, tracing the effect of his debilitation on his wife and family. Phil went off to war six years before we meet him & now we have an intimate look at the effects of his return.
