Unearthed footage: “Shock & Awe” scene wins Manhattan Monologue Slam (January 2010)

Why post something that happened three years ago?

In the first place, we never saw this before.

In the second place, actor Garrett Hendricks helped develop “Shock & Awe.” He’s a friend and an excellent artist, and you’ll like what he does with this role.

Thirdly, and most important by far: the problems faced by U.S. veterans returning from deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan continue to weigh heavily on the American spirit.

And what’s being done about it? Not nearly enough.
