Special Event featuring Carol Ponder and Robert Kiefer
Thursday, November 12 • 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm Admission $15
This powerful narrative, adapted from Lt. Herschel Ponder’s memoir, is written in his storytelling voice – droll, sincere, and cruelly straightforward. Carol, his daughter, provides the music and family narrative that create a rich context for this fighter pilot’s account of his war, and ultimately, his peace. Robert, his son-in-law, speaks Lt. Ponder’s words. Together, they create a tale of humor and horror that’s both tragic and poignant, and a catalyst for healing and understanding war’s wounds in any generation. Appropriate for anyone who enjoys a thumping good story and beautiful songs!
“At the heart of all good theater is a great story. And [My Father’s War] certainly fi ts that description – thanks to the considerable talents of esteemed artists Robert Kiefer and Carol Ponder. Don’t miss it.” — Nashville Tennessean
