Written by a Jesuit priest, this hard-hitting and intense contemporary drama follows the military career and subsequent civilian trial of soldier Steven Dale Green, loosely paralleling the nine circles of Dante's inferno. 9 Circles contains adult themes and strong language. 

9 Circles is presented in connection with our 2016 Common Read book Redeployment by Phil Klay as well as "Musings" both exploring topics of contemporary international conflict and what it means to the community on the Homefront as troops return from war. 

"9 Circles" is approximately 90 minutes long with no intermission. There will be a talkback with the director and cast on Thursday, September 29th immediately following the performance.
