BERWYN – Heart-wrenching and heartwarming stories about veterans, active duty soldiers and police officers take center stage this year as Berwyn’s acclaimed 16th Street Theater honors heroes during its 11th season.
Artistic Director Ann Filmer said the theater’s mission is to tell the stories of everyone in the community, including those who are serving or who have served the country in various capacities.
“Our goal is to tell stories that we’ve not told before,” she said. “I was challenging myself to think of stories that are far removed from my reality because it’s not my job to put myself in danger. I wanted to know who these people are who choose to serve and protect. I wanted our plays to have characters that have made that choice.”
