About the Show: 
Directed by Yale Graduate, Alexandra Renzetti, Valiant is a powerful verbatim theatre piece chronicling the role of women in war. From victim to perpetrator to peacemaker, from Afghanistan to Japan, meet 13 women who have fought, struggled and survived through a century of conflict. Adapted for the stage by Lanna Joffrey from the book of verbatim interviews, Valiant Women in War and Exile by Sally Hayton-Keeva, this new piece of writing explores the perspective of 13 women and how war has shaped their lives and subsequently our own. Most of us know the history of war as men see it; in Valiant, women have their say. 

Valiant was previously performed at the New York International Fringe Festival in 2005, where it received rave reviews, as well as being nominated for the New York Innovative Theatre Award and won the New York International Fringe Festival Overall Excellence in Performance Award. This revival, 10 years after the first viewing, will once again star adapter Lanna Joffrey.
