About this show

In American Hero, an Iraq war hero's perfect life starts to unravel when a fellow veteran seeking justice shows up threatening to expose a hidden past. This raw, gritty drama shines a light on how America honors its veterans as well as on the corrupting effect of awards and commendations. Questioning what it means to be a hero, American Hero joins American Son and a yet-to-be titled new work by the same author to create a trilogy of plays exploring American injustice. American Hero is the recipient of the Steinberg Award Citation from the American Theatre Critics Association.
