Remy Bumppo Theatre Company and the Vet Art Project present the Warrior Poetry Project, an hour-long poetry reading of original poetry written and performed by Vietnam War Veterans and guest artists from Remy Bumppo. This event features poets and veterans Matt Ping, Timothy Brien, A.D. Moore, Tyler Zabel, Remy Bumppo Artistic Associate Greg Matthew Anderson, and Lookingglass Theatre Ensemble Member Raymond Fox (The Voysey Inheritance).

Prior to the poetry reading, Remy Bumppo presented a matinee performance of Heroes, the hilarious story of three WWI veterans who get a second chance for one momentous mission.
