Centenary Stage Company’s Fringe Festival kicks off with The Things They Carried, a one-person tour-de-force that explores the lines between truth and reality as fact and fiction blur in this unforgettable soldier’s journey.

Based on the literary classic by Tim O’Brien The Things They Carried powerfully recalls the personal journey from his innocent years in rural Minnesota to the jungles of Vietnam. Dramatized by Jim Stowell, the play contains graphic descriptions of war violence, very mild sexual content, and use of explicit language. Audience discretion is advised.

The 2019-2020 season of performing arts events at the Centenary Stage Company is made possible through the generous support of the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, the NJ State Council on the Arts, the Shubert Foundation, the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation, the Sandra Kupperman Foundation, and CSC corporate sponsors, including Premiere Season Sponsor The House of the Good Shepherd, Season Sponsor Heath Village Retirement Community, Silver Sponsors Hackettstown Medical Center Atlantic Health System, Home Instead Senior Care (Washington), and Fulton Bank, and Centenary Stage Company members and supporters.
