The Long Way Home

Media Bridges: June 2, 6, 9 and 11

By Tom McElfresh · May 26th, 2010 · Fringe

UC professor Roger Collins’ expressionistic first play takes audiences on a walk along an inner-city boulevard in another man’s shoes. Derek Snow plays an Iraq War veteran who encounters indifference and far worse when he returns. Reggie Willis and Khrys Styles play people he meets along the way. As people fail to interact with him, his reality twists into the surreal.

“We have no clue,” Collins says, “about what issues confront the strangers we meet. How often we turn away when we need to be aware of veterans.

It does make a difference how we treat them.”
