The Hero's Wife is presented by Synchronicity Theatre in a Joint World Premiere with 16th Street Theater Chicago.

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.

**Mature content: This production contains physical and sexual violence, strong language, and gun shot sound effects.**

"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."

Aline Lathrop, a graduate of the Northwestern University Theatre Department, has written plays that have been produced in a variety of theaters within the Windy City and across the country. Her plays Bordello and Feast and Merchild received accolades and recognition in being nominated for a Susan Smith Blackburn Prize (Bordello) and recongized in New City's “Top 5 Best New Plays” (Feast). Feast and Merchild was also originally produced at 16th Street Theater where Lathrop served as the Playwright in Residence in 2015.

She also has developed many plays at Abingdon Theatre Company, the Chicago Cultural Center, Columbia College, Northwestern University and many more. She is a recipient for the Illinois Arts Council Fellowship and the Dr. Donahue Tremaine Grant, a member of the Dramatists Guild, and an alumna of the Chicago Dramatists Resident Playwright.
