What Happens Next Touring

In What Happens Next, Bonnie, an idealistic but inexperienced acting teacher, finds herself paired with a group of veterans as part of a drama therapy program. As she is confronted with the reality of her reluctant new students, Bonnie struggles to find a way to build trust and find common ground. Award-winning artistic team playwright Naomi Iizuka and director Michael John Garcés join Cornerstone in creating a touring play for veteran communities, inspired by stories shared by the military community, this riveting new play mixes professional actors and veterans in an exploration of the complexities of sacrifice and resilience of those who have served. What Happens Next was first performed in association with La Jolla Playhouse as part of their Beyond the Walls series at the Challenged Athlete’s Foundation in San Diego, benefiting Operation Rebound.

What Happens Next was created with minimal space and prop requirements, perfect for almost any time of venue. Approximate run time: 90 minutes, no intermission. Bring What Happens Next to your community, contact us today.
