The Ernie Pyle Show

A bivouac area somewhere just behind the front lines in France, August, 1944; a ship at sea; Sicily; Italy; Normandy; Ie Shima, April, 18, 1945.

The play celebrates the inner-struggle of beloved war correspondent Ernie Pyle, his shy love of people, his tenderness, and his salty Indiana-farmer humor. Tormented by the horrors of war, Ernie served bravely out of an unspoken, unrecognized patriotism. He did not glorify war but rather the simple heroism of the American GI who fought and who was prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice. His was a journalistic, unadorned, rugged writing style which captured the strength and courage of the soldiers he so loved and admired.

At a time when we are losing WWII veterans at a rate of nearly 1,500 per day, this production celebrates their sacrifice and our freedoms.
