2014-2015 Mainstage Season
A Season of Imagining Post-War

The 2014-2015 Fordham Theatre Mainstage season, A Season of Imagining Post-War, explores what happens once the war is over. Each of the four mainstage plays focuses on the theme of family, and the effects of war on both the members that went to battle, and those that stayed behind. In addition, all of the plays ask these questions: “Can we imagine life after war, and if so, do we have what it takes to get there?” As Matthew Maguire, the Fordham Theatre Program Director mused: “The U.S. has been at war since 1776 – there have been 21 years of peace, and 214 years of war. Apparently, we Americans are a warlike people.”
