One of the most acclaimed playwrights to emerge in Chicago in the last decade, Brett Neveu has a reputation for blistering dialogue, complex characters and haunting stories. With Harmless, he writes about a crisis unfolding on a small Midwestern college campus. When a professor encourages free artistic expression in a creative writing class, a student responds with a graphic story about his military service in Iraq. Uncertain about whether the story is based in fact or fiction, the college administration considers if the student is a danger to others and whether the professor provoked him in the name of artistic expression. This intense three-character play asks if the college administration can simply look the other way and examines the military's role in helping the young veteran readjust to civilian life.
