The MiraCosta College theatre students were tasked to take the veterans’ stories and create their own characters and circumstances for each piece. The result is Coming Home, 24 mini movies with each actor working in their own home and neighborhood.
The videos were recorded using the actor’s own cameras, as well as their own lighting, sound, and costumes. Williams is hopeful the production will be fully realized on the stage in the future, but for now, “We are grateful for each other and for the many people who gave us a glimpse into their lives and permission to tell their stories.”
Coming Home is available now on YouTube and does feature some adult language. Watch it here. https://youtu.be/hYeTkBA4_Jc
