The Hero's Wife is presented by Synchronicity Theatre in a Joint World Premiere with 16th Street Theater Chicago.
This production contains sexual violence, violence, and strong language. Trigger warnings - gun shot sounds.
Karyssa desperately tries to connect with her Navy SEAL husband, Cameron. Most of his life has been classified. What’s left, he won’t talk about. While he works to rebuild his world, secret night terrors whisper to a violent past. As Karyssa gets closer, the more dangerous Cameron becomes, but she won’t stop until she unearths the secrets of the man she loves and lights his way home.
The Hero's Wife is presented by special arrangement with the Robert A. Freedman Dramatic Agency, Inc.

"I want to transform an audience’s spirit for the brief catharsis of an evening’s entertainment and the after-shock that may last indefinitely."
