It’s November 21, 1963. On the eve of their deployment to a small but growing conflict in Southeast Asia, three young Marines set out for one final boys’ night of debauchery, partying and maybe a little trouble. But, when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, an awkward and idealistic waitress whom he enlists to win a cruel bet with his fellow recruits, she rewrites the rules of the game and teaches him the power of love and compassion.

 “Dogfight, a story about the close kinship of cruelty to innocence, takes audiences on a romantic and heartbreaking journey that stays with you long after the performance.” – Theatre Review
