Twist, Pull, Smoke - Run, MotherF--er Run!


  • The Maverick Theater (map)

Twist, Pull, Smoke, Run Motherf****r, Run! is the story of a combat veteran who evades his concerned girlfriend’s questions about his tour in Afghanistan, and instead argues with his relentless and ever present PTSD. This recent addition to the Theater of War genre is based on the conversations that co-writer Matthew Domenico had with two Marines from his former unit. He spoke with them not only about their common memories of Afghanistan, but about their experience acclimating back into civilian life. These two Marines and these conversations inspired this play, co-written with Catherine Connor Duff. From veteran to civilian alike, this project is driven by a cast that has all been touched personally by the military community. This piece demonstrates the difficulty of living with Post Traumatic Disorder and, simply and brilliantly, exposes a veteran’s innermost thoughts. See it at the Maverick Theater in Fullerton.
