Youth Onstage! Experimental Workshop presents

Over There/Over Here

Directed by: Brian Mullin

Written by: Michael Reyes


November 10 - December 10, 2006

Over There/Over Here is a provocative new play written by 22-year-old Iraq war veteran Michael Reyes in collaboration with the performers of Youth Onstage! It is a drama created by young people about the war as they have come to know it — from the battlefields of Iraq to the streets of America’s poor communities where most new recruits are being signed up.






  • On Friday, Dec. 8, 2006, the New York Times published this review of the Youth Onstage! production of Over There/Over Here, the original drama about the Iraq War and its impact on the life of a young soldier from Brooklyn.

  • Back Stage, one of the performing arts industry's leading trade publications, ran this feature story in their December 7-13, 2006 edition.

  • The December 2006 issue of American Theatre, the country's leading theatre magazine, published this feature on Over There/Over Here in its December issue.
