Founded in February 2021, VetRep is a tax-exempt, non-profit 501c3 organization which provides a platform for current or former military, law enforcement, fire/EMS, intelligence services, foreign service, DoD employees and contractors and their immediate family members to create compelling, professional live theater and events.
Through an ongoing series of playwrighting competitions, VetRep assesses, develops and produces the work of veteran playwrights. The 2023 Staged Reading Season at our Parlor in Cornwall, NY gives us a chance to perform classic comedies and veteran-authored ten-minute plays weekly while developing the theater-going audience in Orange County, NY and our roster of professional NYC-based actors. Our Savage Wonder literary blog and Savage Wonder podcast are both year-round productions. Our literary blog focuses on veteran writers and poets, while our podcast features long-form, one-on-one conversations with veterans in the arts.
