"We are totally drawn in to Robin’s world, as she delicately lays her life before us...an incredibly moving journey..." Rachel Creeger of Female Arts, LONDON (From the London Workshop of ARMY B.R.A.T. in the Women & War Festival 2016)
Written and Performed by Robin Galloway
Directed by Eliza Baldi
Army B.R.A.T. examines the funny, poignant, and unexpected stories of Robin Galloway and her life on the move as a 4th generation US Army B.R.A.T. It explores the privilege, cost and weight of family legacy, and her life-long desire to achieve a state of “home” - a journey of one woman questioning her destiny.
Army B.R.A.T. has been workshopped at Brown University (RI), Trinity Repertory Company (RI), South Oxford Place (NY), The Women & War Festival in London (UK) and Gloucester Stage Company (MA). As of October of 2018, Robin and Director, Eliza Baldi, continue it’s development with their sights set on a New York City production in 2020.
