Taken from the author’s website:
”Deployed weaves together the original stories, in verbatim accounts, to delve into the unique
challenges of being a woman in the United States military, giving voice to stories that are often
kept hidden: stories of ambition and the desire to prove oneself, stories of oppression and
resilience, stories of assault and abuse, and through it all, stories of pride in service”.
Please be advised: This play deals with issues related to service in the military, including military
sexual trauma (MST). The entire script will be available to read at the audition.
