BEDLAM VETERAN OUTREACH: EMBRACE. EDUCATE. EMPOWER
PLEASE JOIN US for a BEDLAM OUTREACH PRESENTATION:
A staged presentation of the work of Vietnam War Veteran Phil Milio, US Army Vietnam Veteran, Det. A, 1st Military Intelligence Bn (ARS)
WHO: Phil Milio, the Veterans/Actors of Bedlam's Veteran Outreach Class, and Stephan Wolfert, Bedlam's Director of Veteran Outreach.
WHAT: It is now common knowledge that the Veterans of the war in Vietnam were never welcomed home. Here’s a chance to celebrate the Veteran and to experience the dramatic richness found in the writings of our own Phil Milio, as performed by the Veterans/Actors of Bedlam Outreach.
WHEN: Monday, January 30th
6:30-7:00pm: A very informal “meet and greet” between the Veterans/Actors, Bedlam Company Members and YOU.
7-9pm: The presentation, featuring scenes and monologues written by Vietnam War Veteran Phil Milio and performed by Bedlam Outreach Veterans and faculty.
WHERE: Intersections International, 11th Floor, 145 W 28th Street, York, NY 10001. (Cross streets are 28th & 7th Avenue) (Entrance Located between two stores: CFD Silk Flowers and VASESOURCE).
WHY: At Bedlam, we believe in the power of the performing arts to help reintegrate Veterans back into civilian life, and to help them articulate and understand their experiences through the communal process of making theatre.
Our Public Presentations and "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.
