In honor of Veterans Day and the many that have fought to preserve liberty and freedom, Merrimack Repertory Theatre announces a one day internet sale for its upcoming production of Heroes by Gerald Sibleyras, adapted by Academy and Tony Award-winner Tom Stoppard. Veterans Day, which falls on November 11, was originally called Armistice Day and commemorates the cessation of hostilities between Allied forces and Germany on November 11, 1918. Heroes is the story of Henri, Gustave, and Philippe, three aging World War I veterans plotting one final adventure.  On Veterans Day only (November 11), all available tickets for performances of Heroes from November 24 through November 29 can be purchased online for $19.18 at www.MerrimackRep.org.  This special offer is only available online and subject to availability.

 

Heroes is an Olivier Award-winning comedy making its New England premiere on Merrimack Rep’s Liberty Hall stage. Liberty Hall is part of Lowell Memorial Auditorium, which was built immediately following World War I as a memorial for Lowell’s veterans. Two plaques listing the 148 Lowell soldiers who died in World War I (referred to as The World War, as it was built prior to World War II) hang in the Hall of Flags among names of soldiers from other conflicts, including World War II, the Civil War, and the Korean War.
