A play adapted from the book of the same name, Minefields and Miniskirts is told from the perspective of five women who volunteered during the Vietnam War as an entertainer, a nurse, a journalist, a volunteer and the wife of a Vietnam veteran. Peppered with iconic songs from the era, the women reminisce about why they chose to volunteer, their first impressions of Vietnam, and the challenges faced working in a war zone. Later, they explore how it felt to leave as Saigon fell to the communists, and reflect on their lives since. Proceeds will be donated to Legacy to support Veterans and their families.
