WHEN THE WINDS STOPS is a new play created for Theatre Winter Haven’s The Veterans Project. In the fall and winter of 2016/17 three writers conducted interviews with members of the Polk County Veteran’s Community. Citizens of Polk County who have served their country in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq and Afghanistan contributed over 100 hours of recorded stories. WHEN THE WINDS STOPS is crafted from these stories which have been woven together to create a living history of memories and experiences both shared and individual. This new play features an ensemble that includes four local U.S. Veterans making their debut on the TWH stage: Louis Calabretta, Ryan Darley, Eric Graham and David Hartzell. Rounding out the cast are three TWH performers: Sara Catherine Barnes, Larry Helms, and Kadesh Lewis.
