…a Nova Scotian soldier returns home after an unspeakable crime in the desert. Trauma follows him in the shape of three vicious crows. In a letter to Heat Veteran’s Emergency Transition Services president Jim Lowther says, “it explains better than they could speak about what is going on with them.” Dr. John Whelan, a veteran himself and Lead Psychologist, Whelan Psychological Services Inc. advised on triggering protocols and was in attendance for every performance of the show. Heat was invited to present the play at Thrive!, a tripartite initiative to promote healthy options for military members. Heat was invited to present the play in Vienna at the inaugural World PTSD day.
