Overview


Exclusive Look:

Don't miss the final show on Charles Street!
"Everyman Theatre's Heroes an endearing adventure. A wry comedy... perfectly cast and sensitively directed by Donald Hicken." — The Baltimore Sun

"Stellar performances! With it’s bittersweet comic edge, Heroes is a fitting tribute to the kind and caliber of theater one has grown to expect at the Everyman." — Broadwayworld

"Heroes is at once poignant, brilliant, and perpetually hilarious — a testament to the good work that Everyman has done, and will continue to do in the future. It’s an excellent performance to end Everyman’s run at the Charles St. Theatre—well-acted, perfectly choreographed, visually stunning, bittersweet, funny, and altogether human." — MD Theatre Guide

"One hell of an entertaining show! A barrel of laughs! It’s a charming and humorous adventure that reminds the audience that life is what you make of it; and you can have a grand adventure even if you are confined to an Old Soldiers home and your quartet includes a stone dog. Five out of Five stars!" —DC Metro Theatre Arts

Winner of the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy! The year is 1959. Three aging World War I veterans find themselves residing together in a military retirement home in the French countryside. They pass the time on their favorite isolated terrace – gossiping, joking, and generally irritating one another. Looking out to the cemetery beyond, the trio dream of their freedom. Our three heroes (along with a statue of a dog!) set into motion a courageous and adventurous escape plan to make their escape once and for all. What will their final destination be -- Indochina? The local village? Or perhaps just to the top of the hill? Heroes combines Tom Stoppard’s hysterical wit with the poignancy of the three veterans approaching their final journey together.
