“Heroes” Theatre Review: All Star Salute

Heroes

Presented by Remy Bumppo

At the Greenhouse Theatre Center

Written by Gerald Sibleyras

Translated by Tom Stoppard

Directed by James Bohnen

Thru November 29th

A head of shrapnel, gimp leg and derangement have never been funnier. Remy Bumppo’s Heroes bring three World War I vets together for convalescent camaraderie. Set in an old soldier home, our heroes amuse each other with tales of nun slapping, terrace invasion defense strategies and escape plans with a 200 pound dog statue in tow. It’s not your grandpa’s war show about reliving the glory days of WW I. Instead, Heroes is about three outcasts (four if you count the dog) banning together in united tolerance for the final battle, old age.
