A Veteran's Story Woven With Shakespeare Comes to Houston With Cry Havoc at Spring Street

Members of the military receive all training possible to prepare them for war. But as countless books and movies have demonstrated (American Sniper, for one), our country doesn't do such a good job getting them ready to return to life at home. 

Stephan Wolfert, part of the Bedlam Theatre company, now in town presenting Saint Joan at Spring Street Studios, thanks to Houston's Stark Naked Theatre, has developed a one-man show titled Cry Havoc that will be performed here on two Wednesday nights.

Weaving some of Shakespeare's famous speeches about war with his own experiences, Wolfert says he left the military after seeing a performance of Shakespeare's Richard III and decided to go into theater. 

Two performances are scheduled for June 8 and 15 at 7:30 p.m. at Spring Street Studios, 1824 Spring. For information, call 832-786-1849 or visit $29-$49 general admission and VIP, $23 seniors and $15 students.
