The American Soldier A Fundraiser for Harvest House in Honor of Veteran's Day 2018

"Onstage Taurel commits totally to his characters…flawlessly and powerful” - The Huffington Post
“Taurel gives each voice a sensitive, moving presence…he is utterly believable” - British Theatre Guide

THE AMERICAN SOLDIER has been nominated for the Amnesty International Award for theatre excellence, received 4 stars internationally, and has been featured in The Huffington Post, The Washington Post and Time Out, to name a few. The solo play was performed at The Kennedy Center during inauguration weekend at the Library of Congress on Veterans Day in 2017. The show is based on real stories and accounts from soldiers’ letters written from the American Revolution through current day Afghanistan. It reveals the struggles our veterans face at war and their internal struggles to come back home. This show strives to help us understand how and why it is so difficult for men and women in the armed services to re-enter our civilian life when they come home. It honors and exposes their flaws, their scars, their families, and their spirits.

This fundraiser will support the Veterans Empowered through Transitional Services (VETS) program at Harvest House.

Tuesday Nov. 13 | 5:30 - 8:30 pm

Heavy hors d'oeuvre, beer, and wine served from 5:30 - 7:00 pm. The show will start at 7:00 pm.

Thank you to our Presenting Sponsors

Harvest House believes that all people, including veterans, have the right to a safe and stable place to live.


Veterans Empowered through Transitional Services

Higher rates of physical and emotional trauma, substance abuse, and unemployment make veterans twice as likely to become homeless than non-veterans. Although these individuals are revered for their service, there is a monumental lack of programs and social networks to help returning soldiers adjust to civilian life.

The VETS program at Harvest House assists male veterans who have struggled with emotional trauma and substance abuse after their service by offering:

  • housing set in a therapeutic community,
  • recovery & life skills classes
  • & case management services
