Eighteenth Season: 2016

Outside Paducah


Written and Performed by J.A. Moad II
Directed by Leah Cooper
November 10 – 13, 2016

Award-winning writer and performer (and 20 year Veteran himself) J.A. Moad II delivers three powerful and fascinating stories from three different generational perspectives about the challenges, joy, love and heartbreak surrounding our Veterans and those most important to them once they return home.

This trio of personal narratives captures the toll of war not only on those who’ve experienced conflict, but on their families and communities as well. Set in small towns situated at the conflux of Kentucky, Illinois and Missouri, Outside Paducah invites audiences to bear witness to the struggles of Veterans as they assimilate back into society; each unique and unflinching story serving to help bridge the military-civilian divide. Don’t miss this one-weekend-only special engagement.
