|Written by former Green Beret, LTC Scott Mann and based on real events, Last Out is a story that has never been told in a voice that has never been heard. Performed by a professional cast of military veterans and military family members, this play is a white-knuckle ride that tells the real story of our soldiers and the families that fight alongside them. It’s more than a play…it’s Combat Storytelling.
Throughout history, societies have used storytelling to help warriors integrate back into society, and Last Out follows in that tradition. The mission of this production is to validate the journey of our military veterans and their families while building genuine and well-informed understanding in the communities where they live.
LTC Mann’s 501c3 non-profit, The Heroes Journey, has taken Last Out on a National tour, bringing his message to the folks who need to hear it most. With performances in 11 cities so far, from Albuquerque to New York, Last Out has honored over 500 military heroes and Gold Star Families, performed over 150 PTS Interventions and impacted over 3,000 lives. Last Out has received rave reviews from active duty members, Vietnam Veterans, Gold Star Families, military families, and civilians with no military connections at all. The play has also gotten strong critical reviews from Washington DC Metro Theater Arts, Military Times, and Tom Brokaw.
