Playwright Jon Bernson turned an investigative report about female veterans’ struggles into a one-act play.

The drama, “A Guide to the Aftermath,” debuted earlier this year at Tides Theatre in San Francisco as part of our StoryWorks collaboration with the theater.


  • Watch “Her War,” the documentary by Mimi Chakarova that inspired Bernson’s play.
