Overview
Location

The Carpetbag Theatre presents the acclaimed production of Speed Killed My Cousin, a moving story of a young, African American, woman veteran of the Iraq War and her struggle with "Moral Injury", Post Traumatic Stress disorder (PTSD) and Military Sexual Trauma (MST). A third generation soldier, the central character courts death by vehicular suicide. "Speed" explores multiple issues related to war, including the history and otherness of African Americans in the military and the experiences of women in combat. Memories and flashbacks unfold before her, and in her rear-view mirror, as she drives. Ultimately she must decide whether to let go of the wheel or to choose life.
