VIRTUAL PERFORMANCE

We lose 22 soldiers a day to suicide; 22 men and women who have fought and survived only to return home broken and abandoned. This story is an exploration of one woman and one man, both struggling with this unspeakable choice, and the small, quiet hope they find in each other.

Content Advisory: Twenty-Two deals with PTSD related to military deployment; discusses suicide by firearm; and contains scenes describing war, violence, and gun usage. This play contains some strong language.
