SARATOGA SPRINGS >> The dramatic production, “Cry Havoc,” is specifically geared toward the issue of helping veterans reintegrate into society.
The program is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 19 at Universal Preservation Hall, 25 Washington St. in Saratoga Springs.
“Cry Havoc” is open to the public free of charge, but requires a ticket. It will be followed by an interactive session between Wolfert and the audience.
It is presented by the Saratoga County Veterans Peer to Peer Program.
The premise of the production is that veterans get plenty of training on how to wage combat in the military, but not nearly as much guidance on how to adapt to civilian life once their military careers are over.
Veteran and actor Stephan Wolfert has developed a De-Cruit program to help them.
Combining the words of Shakespeare with his own experiences, Wolfert’s one-man show dramatizes the difficulties many veterans face in moving from being “wired for war,” but not “rewired for society.”
“We’re proud to have Stephan come to Saratoga County to bring attention to this critical issue faced by veterans and their families everywhere,” said Amy Hughes, Saratoga County Veterans Peer to Peer Mentoring Program Coordinator.
The mentoring program gives local veterans who have reintegrated to civilian life a chance to assist fellow veterans who are struggling with this issue. The relationships established will build resiliency through encouragement, personal connections, and personal growth.
