Wagner, Colleen. The Monument. Toronto: Playwrights Canada Press, 1996.
Synopsis from Colleen Wagner’s website:
“The Monument is about a young soldier convicted of war crimes. Stetko is the boy next door who comes from respectable parents and has gotten caught up in the political events of a war he never understood. Like the good son, the good soldier, he obeys his superiors only to find that, at the conclusion of war, he has become the scapegoat for crimes “everyone was doing.” He is “rescued” by a woman from the enemy side, a woman who suspects he knows the whereabouts of her missing daughter, and arranges his release. The Monument charts the visceral journey of two characters, and through their journey exams the ambiguities of morality and justice, the paradox of a soldier today, and the length that must be traversed to reach potential reconciliation.”
*** Toronto’s Factory Theatre will be staging a production of The Monument from March 15 – April 1st, 2018. For more information, visit the Factory Theatre website.
