Liguorian Players to present "The Monument"

"The Monument," written by Colleen Wagner and directed by Redemptorist Father Lenny Delgado, will be presented June 2-13 at Teatro Circulo, 64 East 4th Street, New  York, NY. Performances will be at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, with 3 p.m. matinee performances Saturday and Sunday. The play is presented by the Liguorian Players, part of the Redemptorist Evangelization Through Media & Arts (RETMA) ministry.

"The Monument" is the story of a young soldier convicted of war crimes. Stetko is the boy next door who comes from respectable parents and has gotten caught up in the political events of a war he never understood. Like the good son, the good soldier, he obeys his superiors only to find that, at the conclusion of war, he has become the scapegoat for crimes "everyone was doing." He is "rescued" by a woman from the enemy side. "The Monument" examines the paradox of a soldier today, and the ambiguities of morality and justice.
