Since 2008, The Telling Project, a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization, has worked with military veterans and their families to facilitate communication between with military veterans, their families, and civilian communities across the United States. For Telling, Albuquerque local military veterans and family members will have recorded interviews transcribed and shaped into a performance script. After intensive performance training and rehearsal, they will perform their stories for their Albuquerque community. Telling, Albuquerque stories will include those of male and female veterans from various eras and conflicts, as well family members such as wives, parents and children of military veterans.
The Telling Project has produced performances across the United States in such cities as Washington DC (The Library of Congress), San Francisco, Portland OR, Austin, Minneapolis, and New York City. Telling, Albuquerque will represent the 18th original Telling Project production.
Telling, Albuquerque, is written by The Telling Project’s senior writer/producer, Max Rayneard, and MAMF writer-in-residence, and local producer Caroline LeBlanc. Max Rayneard will direct the production, assisted by Martin Andrews and Claudia Mathes.
A number of volunteers have been working towards creating a successful event. Willing volunteers and sponsors should contact Caroline LeBlanc at [email protected].
