Veterans are invited to attend the February 7, 8pm, performance of Orange Julius at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, with a talkback following the show to discuss being the child of a veteran.
In Orange Julius, Nut grew up the youngest child of Julius, a Vietnam vet, in the 1980s and 90s working-class America. As Julius suffers the toxic effects of Agent Orange, Nut worries their time together may run out before they can embrace something essential about their relationship. Paging through forgotten photo albums and acting out old war movies about brothers-in-arms, Nut leaps through time and memory, tracing the complex intimacy between father and child when the child is transgender, fighting for a mutual recognition before it's too late.
Lead actor Stephen Payne is a veteran who served two tours in Vietnam.
