Description

Set against the backdrops of the Vietnam War, World War II and the Korean War, Beyond Glory tells the stirring, emotional, and heroic true stories of eight recipients of America’s highest military award, the Medal of Honor, told by one actor. Beyond Glory gathers these men together in the present to look back on the defining moments of their lives and to examine the meaning of courage, duty, and ultimately, humility.

A rare opportunity to find out about the details of how the Medal of Honor were won by eight American servicemen.

Steve Scott plays all eight with a subtle touch and a level of intimacy that draws you into the narrative of all eight stories whilst personalising each different tale of heroism in a manner that recognises the bravery whilst acknowledging the feelings and thoughts of all eight.

An excellent thought provoking production.

A gripping show about 8 American war heroes told by just one actor with the deftest subtlety. Inspiring, brave, thoroughly human storytelling that manages to avoid straying into the jingoistic. Thoroughly recommended.
