You can — if you're an Iraq and Afghanistan vet, active duty officer, or a family member of someone who.
The theater is giving out free tickets to the April 27 performance of the highly acclaimed play from the National Theatre of Scotland, which is about a Scottish Army regiment's eye-view of the war in Iraq.
A Lieutenant Colonel who saw the production in an earlier run praised it as "without doubt among the most stirring experience I have ever had; in or out of a theater — profound, beautiful give to this world."
Eligible candidates can enter a lottery by April 6 here. A limited number of tickets will also be available for free at 7 pm on the night of the show.
