The UMD School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies is proud to present Welcome Home, Jenny Sutter, directed by Leslie Felbain. Julie Marie Myatt's play follows a wounded Marine sergeant returns from a difficult tour of duty in Iraq to find herself lost, without the body and mind she once knew. The eccentric inhabitants of Slab City, a makeshift community in the California desert, give her the homecoming she needs to return to her previous life. Read Washington Post reviews of this play and learn more about the effects of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder and its effect on female war veterans:
