Olive Branch & Laurel Crown — the veterans acting ensemble at the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company (CSC) — is reviving their original play To Be A Soldier, previously performed to great acclaim at the annual conference of the international Shakespeare Theater Association in January, and at CSC in Baltimore, in March.

To Be A Soldier portrays universal realities of war faced throughout the history of humanity. The play’s five acts reveal and examine: political events that lead to war, alliances and betrayals, life and death on the battlefield, the plight of prisoners of war, and the post-war return to regular life and society.
