Telling: Houston spans the last 50 years of U.S. military history--from Vietnam to Iraq & Afghanistan—as told by the people who lived it—military veterans and their families from Houston. With less than 1% serving in the armed forces today, Americans have become increasingly separated from those who serve. The Telling Project a national performing arts non-profit, works to bridge this gap by collaborating with communities to produce performances where local veterans and their family members speak directly to civilians about their military experiences. Since 2008, The Telling Project has produced 35 original performances, put over 180 veterans and family members on stage and performed in 16 states across the nation. Telling: Houston marks the Houston debut of this innovative program which has been featured in The New York Times, Associated Press and on PBS and NPR.

The Telling Project is presented in conjunction with the Alley Theatre's production of Grounded.

Tickets to The Telling Project are free. Advance reservation is required.
