The Hero's Wife is presented by Synchronicity Theatre in a Joint World Premiere with 16th Street Theater Chicago.
Cameron doesn’t remember what he does at night, and Karyssa doesn’t tell him. He's just retired from the Navy SEALs, and most of his life has been classified. What's left, he doesn't want to talk about. During the day, Cameron tries to rebuild his life, but secret night terrors shed light on a violent past. Desperate to reach him, Karyssa tries to connect with Cameron through nostalgic Skype sex and secretly-learned Arabic sleep talk. The closer she gets to him, the more dangerous he becomes, but she won't stop until she unearths the secrets of the man she loves.
The Hero's Wife is presented by special arrangement with the Robert A. Freedman Dramatic Agency, Inc.

"I want to transform an audience’s spirit for the brief catharsis of an evening’s entertainment and the after-shock that may last indefinitely."
