Streamers Flies Off the BU Theatre Stage

After enduring the grueling rigors of boot camp, four soldiers stationed at Fort Lee, Va., watch from afar as the Vietnam conflict escalates. David Rabe, the Tony Award–winning author of In the Boom Boom Room and Hurlyburly, writes about the soldiers’ struggle with their new place in the army in Streamers, the Huntington Theatre Company’s current production.

Directed by Scott Ellis, Streamers explores the confusion and tension the soldiers face while exploring issues of sexuality and class, leading up to an explosive finish.

Streamers runs through December 9 at the Boston University Theatre, 264 Huntington Ave., Boston. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Additional matinee performances may be scheduled. Tickets are $15 to $70 and are available here. For more information visit the Huntington Theatre Company Web site.
