Presented in recognition of Veterans Day, Fit for Society is a compelling and unflinching play about the military experience during war. Encounter the stories of actual soldiers, survivors and family members presented without pity, apology or political agenda. The play was written by Brian Monahan, the son of a Navy officer, and director Stephan Wolfert, a U.S. Army veteran and the military director of the Tony Award-winning Broadway production Movin’ Out! The LA Weekly states that Wolfert “shapes the performances of his excellent cast well, inspiring an authentic, gripping tone throughout.”
Dr. Anthony Hassan, a retired Air Force officer, clinical associate professor at the USC School of Social Work and director of the Center for Innovation and Research on Veterans & Military Families, will moderate a conversation with Stephan Wolfert to discuss his personal inspiration for the production. In an interactive reception following the conversation, several USC veterans will share how their military experiences have shaped their lives
Organized by Syreeta Greene (Transfer and Veteran Student Programs) and Anthony Hassan (Social Work).
