The Telling Project works with communities and organizations to produce “Telling,” an innovative performance for military veterans and their family members to share their stories. After interviews, script development, and actor training and rehearsal, veterans and veteran dependents stage the ‘telling’ of their stories for their communities.  The Telling Project creates opportunities for veterans to speak and their communities to listen. The Telling Project has been performed in 14 cities and 9 states since 2008, putting over 50 veterans and family members on stage to tell their stories of military life to their communities.

The Telling Project is a direct response to a critical disconnect between the veteran and civilian communities during a time of war.  The Telling Project provides a forum in which veterans and their family members can speak directly to their own communities concerning their experiences, humanizing and making immediate what are otherwise abstract and polarizing ideas and issues.

Telling Aggieland features the stories of ten Aggie veterans and family members. Performances run April 29, 30, and May 1, 2014 at 7pm in the Rudder Theater. Tickets are free and will be available at the MSC Box Office beginning March 17, 2014.

Telling Aggieland is sponsored by The Association of Former Students, the Academy for the Visual and Performing Arts, & the Veteran Resource and Support Center.
