The Telling Project: Albuquerque 2018
Duke City Repertory Theatre is honored to partner with The Telling Project, which creates platforms around the nation for service members to tell their own deeply moving and enlightening stories. Our collaboration will bring to stage the personal experiences of local veterans with the style and commitment to quality that DCRT is known for.
It is the goal of DCRT’s participation in this project to de-mystify and bring a human element to the long lasting effects (positive and negative) of military service to the rest of our community and engender growth through conversation and understanding.

The Telling Project is a national performing arts non-profit that employs theater to deepen our understanding of the military and veterans’ experience. Greater understanding fosters receptivity, easing veterans’ transitions back to civil society, and allowing communities to benefit from the skills and experience they bring with them. Through this understanding, a community deepens its connection to its veterans, itself, and its place in the nation and the world.
The most direct path to understanding veterans’ experience is person-to-person contact. With the dramatic decline in the numbers serving in the military – less than one percent of the population over the last eleven years of war – this contact will not happen through day-to-day life. It must be created and supported. Through performance, The Telling Project puts veterans and military family members in front of their communities to share their stories. We give veterans and military family members the opportunity to speak, and their communities the opportunity to listen.
Since 2008, The Telling Project has produced 40+ original performances, put over 180 veterans and family members on stage and performed in 16 states across the nation. It has been featured by PBS, the Associated Press, New York Times, Washington Post, MSNBC, NPR, Inside Higher Ed and others, and supported by the Bob Woodruff Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Library of Congress, The Smithsonian Institution and others. In 2009, The Telling Project, which is based in Austin, TX, received 501(c)(3) status as a non-profit.
