Warrior Word: Veterans of U.S. wars present monologue writing

April 3 in Aleshire Theater at 7 p.m., veterans of U.S. wars will present work they completed in “Warrior Words,” a monologue-writing workshop offered by The Greater Grand Forks Community Theatre in four North Dakota cities. Conrad Davidson, Minot State University College of Arts and Sciences dean, taught the Minot workshop, which consisted of eight sessions. The Minot presenters will be Mike Carswell, Claire Eide, Orlan Hall, Tim Knickerbocker, Millo Wallace and Max Zurcher. This event is free and open to the public.

“We expected stories about sacrifice, but there was also humor, as veterans from various generations and branches of service shared their experiences,” Davidson said.

Warrior Words was open to veterans of any American war or conflict who had an interest in creating work based on their experiences as soldiers. The workshops were funded in part by the North Dakota Humanities Council, a nonprofit, independent state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Workshop writers will be invited to Grand Forks for a collective reading on May 22.
