This marks the world premiere of Donavon Thomas' original work "POST".
This emotionally gripping play is about two Iraq veterans coping with the aftereffects of war. A searing, provocative and raw drama unfolds around Michael and Chuck as a result.
Released with a honorable discharge, Michael Abner returns from his tour in Iraq to room up with his veteran friend Chuck. Chuck is hoping to find peace from the psychological aftershocks of the war.
While training to be an EMT, Michael falls in love with Autumn, the vegan baker who lives across the street. But when Michael realizes Chuck is also in love with Autumn, neither is emotionally prepared to handle the situation, except by using the violence they've been trained in.
