Commemorate the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War as you engage in the lives of one family dealing with the hardships and heartaches of war.

To set the mood for the play, Civil War era music will be performed by Raison D'Etre prior to the opening scene. The talented trio is juried and listed among artists in the Kentucky Arts Council's Performing Arts Directory.

Soldier, Come Home will be directed by Falcon's Clint Ibele. The Library wishes to thank Falcon Theater and its members for the time and talent invested to bring the production to the Library and to our community.
