The Vietnam War claimed the lives of over 58,000 Americans, and the effects of "America's longest war" continue to be widespread. Based on the letters and remembrances of visitors to the "Virtual" Vietnam Veterans Memorial, The Remembered is a reflective dialogue that lets us see and feel how the Vietnam War changed families across America forever.
Known as "The Wall," the memorial in Washington DC attracts more than four million visitors annually, and many more have visited the Wall online. It's from this Virtual Wall that Elliott Levine weaves together different voices as they discuss war and loss, and how they should process the haunting list of so many names. Writing in the form of a play, Levine accomplishes the emotional highs and lows that cause us to stir and be humbled by great sacrifice and patriotism.
The Remembered provides a unique glimpse into the hearts of our generation, and our sense of grateful empathy and unbridled honor for the men and women who died in America's most contested war.
