Theater in English... Word for Word!

“Word For Word”, an American theater company from San Francisco, is back in town for 3 performances of the short story “Home” by George Saunders. “Home” is the story of Mikey, a war veteran returning to a home that is increasingly cruel and absurd-and his quest for understanding and compassion. George Saunders’ subtle, yet absurdist, humor brings a unique slant to otherwise dark topics. Click here for more information about “Home”.
