NMU students perform “Fallujah”

Northern Michigan University’s Forest Roberts Theater is putting on a new play called “Fallujah” this week.

The play is about a journalist who is embedded with Marines serving in Iraq.  “Fallujah” centers around what it is like to serve in the military, and post–traumatic stress syndrome.  Students in the play did research about what it is like to be in the military, and even talked to a veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

NMU is the third company to put on “Fallujah”.  Valentine chose this play because of many veterans who attend MNU.

“Fallujah” has performances Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m., and at 1 p.m. Saturday.  Tickets are $15 for the general public, $5 for NMU students, and $10 for other students 18 and under.  The play does have strong language, so young children are advised not to attend.
