L.I.P. Service’s second show of the 2015 season is a regional revival of David Rabe's award winning drama Streamers, an unflinching exploration of the turmoil and confusion facing young men threatened by forces beyond their control.
In this powerful American masterpiece directed by Seth Johnston (Drag Strip Courage), four young soldiers fresh from boot camp wait anxiously in 1965 Virginia, watching the Vietnam conflict escalate. As they struggle to make sense of their new life in the army, tensions rise over race, sexuality, and class, culminating in an explosive act that changes them forever.
Streamers premiered Off-Broadway in April 1976 and won numerous awards including the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best American Play, Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play and was nominated in 1977 for a Tony Award for Best Play.
