Heroes-Ross Valley Players-Nov 9-Dec 16

James Dunn, a veteran of forty six years in directing and teaching theater arts was greatly moved by a play he had seen in London called “Heroes”; thus, he was determined to direct the premiere of the play in the San Francisco Bay Area for the Ross Valley Players. Only three actors comprise the play, crafting a performance which is engrossing on many levels. Russell Lessig (Philippe), Alex Ross (Henn) and Wood Lockhart (Gustave) are three veterans of World War I living in an old soldiers’ home outside Paris in 1959. Each have a burning desire to escape from their confines both physically and mentally. There is a wonderful mixture of some very unexpected and striking humor, compassion and longing, which makes this play so powerful and poignant. In fact, it is one of the few seemingly simple plays with only one set that generates a much bigger picture and describes an interaction of three people who are quite different, but humanly have the same universal needs and desires. A great rendition of a play which will last a lifetime in your memory and even create a positive impact on your life.
