Lionheart puts on play about Vietnam veterans

Lionheart Theatre Company's current production, "Strange Snow," follows two Vietnam war veterans readjusting to life at home after experiencing war abroad.

The play's subject matter is timely as the nation will honor those who have served in the armed forces on Veterans Day on Thursday.

The Norcross-based community theater will honor veterans in its own way by donating a portion of proceeds from ticket sales to the Georgia Vietnam Veterans Alliance, an organization that serves veterans and their families.

"Strange Snow," a play in two acts, was written by screenwriter Stephen Metcalfe, who adapted the story for the 1989 film "Jacknife" starring Robert De Niro and Ed Harris.

Lionheart Theatre will present the stage version 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2:30 p.m. Sundays through Nov. 21.

Reservations for "Strange Snow" are recommended and can be made by calling 678-938-8518. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for seniors and students and include a complimentary dessert.
