‘The Draft’: New Vietnam War Play

“The Draft, ” a new multimedia play dealing with the Vietnam War and how ten young men respond to their greetings from Uncle Sam, opens at Hiberian Hall in Roxbury, Massachusetts, tomorrow, September 10. The show runs through Sept. 20, with subsequent performances slated for Westfield State University in Westfield, Mass., Trinity College in Hartford, Conn., and The Academy of Music in Northhampton, Mass.

According to playwright  Peter Noad, the play “tells the real-life stories of ten young Americans and the choices they made in response to the military draft during the U.S. war in Vietnam. They accepted the call to serve and saw combat; refused to cooperate and did jail time; won conscientious objector status and organized for civil rights and against the war; evaded the draft and counseled others on their options; chose self-exile in Canada; and cared for the wounded and traumatized.”
