by my strength
a new play by Laura Stevens
"I don't go out in public in my
uniform, people whisper and stare and point... you're the freak, the one who wanted to be a soldier."
Kat wanted to belong, so she joined the Army. After all, it's the ultimate test of who you are and what you stand for... Only in Afghanistan, it's not always that simple.
By My Strength is a gripping new work by Bruntwood finalist Laura Stevens, exploring the inner-most thoughts of a 'normal girl' figuring out her identity as woman - soldier - girlfriend - gun-lover before, during and after her time as a soldier in Afghanistan.
