Alice and Eugene: The Lucky Ones
True, Local Stories from WWII and The Great Depression
"The Lucky Ones" is an original play in two acts featuring the stories of a local WWII veteran who was stationed in New Guinea and his wife. The play captures the hardships of a young soldier fighting in the war, the efforts of a young woman fighting at home, and the story of how their lives intertwined. Throughout the play, these stories are expressed through various art forms including Songwriting, Poetry, Visual Art and Creative Movement. These stories were gathered through extensive interviews with Alice and Eugene during the summer of 2013.
