Tunnel to Towers proudly presents Last Out: Elegy of a Green Beret - A Heroes Journey Production

New York City welcomes The Heroes Journey for a one-night only performance of “Last Out: Elegy of a Green Beret” on April 9th, in a special partnership with the Tunnel to Towers Foundation. This poignant play is set to grace the stage of St. George Theatre on Staten Island, offering a moving tribute to the brave first responders of 9/11. Through the powerful narrative, the performance artfully intertwines themes of military sacrifice, valor, and the human cost of service, resonating deeply with the heroism displayed during one of America’s darkest days. This unique collaboration and performance seeks not only to honor the memory of those who served with unwavering courage but also to inspire and unite the community in remembrance and gratitude so that we may never forget.

About the Play:

Army Green Beret Danny Patton is a modern-day warrior fighting battles that range from tribal Afghanistan to his own living room. As the corrosive gears of war begin to rip apart his family, his integrity, and his soul, Danny is thrust into his final, eternal mission. On the other side, with Valhalla beckoning, he discovers that combat can be fueled by vengeance or by love…it just depends which price you are willing to pay. You’ve heard the war stories of the “first in.” This is the untold true story of the last out.

About the Story:

Last Out was pulled from the experiences of the longest war in American history, a war mostly fought in the shadows. This is a two-act play, with a small cast of combat veterans and military-family members playing multiple roles. An elegy is a lament for the dead, therefore all scenes take place somewhere in the after-life, spanning different times from Danny’s youth and military career from May 1989 until his death in 2015.

War comes with many costs, some more obvious than others. The physical wounds and loss of life are tragic but visible, and burdens that are readily shared. Unfortunately, there are hundreds of thousands of military veterans and family members for whom the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are still being waged, at home. Their stories are seldom told and rarely understood. This is not only unfortunate, but a threat to our national security and the fabric of our society –but we’re changing that.

There will be scenes and sounds of combat, strobe effects, fog, a wooden weapon, and profanity. Our show contains news clips from the 9/11 attacks on the Pentagon and the crash of Extortion 17.
