MEETING ROOM (ENTER by way of 55 Washington Square South)
A 'bullet catcher' is Army slang for an infantryman. They live and die on the frontlines and carry this nickname like a badge of honor. It’s a sacrifice that few are willing to make. The honorable men who volunteer for this service don’t take it lightly. Neither do the women.
Set in the not too distant future, Bullet Catchers follows the first official mixed gender infantry unit in the U.S. Army, from training to deployment. In the throes of war, they must face what it means to be a soldier, a unit, and a part of history.
Told in part through dance, music, and poetry, Bullet Catchers is a new, collaboratively written play based on interviews with current service members and veterans, as well as members of our own ensemble.
