At Thanksgiving, we join together with our families — both generated and created through friendship, to celebrate togetherness. 'I Am From' reflects that togetherness.
"I Am From" is an original ensemble play created by the actors from the Warwick Actor Training School. We each come from remembered times -- people, favorite foods, games, secret places, heroes and heroines, wonderful times, challenging times and many funny ones, too. This play is an exploration and celebration of that.
In 2010, the Army created Cultural Support Teams, a secret pilot program to insert women alongside Special Operations soldiers battling in Afghanistan. The Army reasoned that women could play a unique role on Special Ops teams: accompanying their male colleagues on raids and, while those soldiers were searching for insurgents, questioning the mothers, sisters, daughters and wives living at the compound. Their presence had a calming effect on enemy households, but more importantly, the CSTs were able to search adult women for weapons and gather crucial intelligence.
