Ghosts of War
A New Play by Christopher Johnston
Directed by Joe Ricci
*members of Actor's Equity
Based on extensive interviews with a retired Marine officer who served in Vietnam, Christopher Johnston's new play, The Ghosts of War, chronicles Jim Kyle’s four-decade search to learn what happened to his friend, Danny Nicklow, who was killed in action at Khe Sanh in 1967.
Danny was a member of the 1/9 (First Battalion, Ninth Marines), better known as The Walking Dead. At Khe Sanh, the 1/9 was basically annihilated, suffering the highest loss rate in US Marine history.The play explores three Marines who served in Vietnam: One dies and leaves his promise unfulfilled; one is severely wounded and remains haunted by war; one loses his family in an act of angry self-destruction, but finds redemption when he uncovers the truth about his friend’s heroic death.
