The National Vietnam Veterans Museum is proud to present the show, Dusted Off which is as much about Vietnam as it is about family. It is as much about war as it is about love. It is as much a story of one man and one family, as it is the story of all our young men, who fight anywhere and return home to pick up the pieces.
Actor, musician and singer/songwriter Brett Hunt brings to the stage with alacrity and passion, the story of his family and his father Frank Hunt – the eponymous Frankie who ‘kicked the mine the day man landed on the moon’. Just as in John Schuman’s I Was Only 19, Frank Hunt in Dusted Off is an everyman, and this one-man play, through music and monologue, explores the legacies of war, of post-traumatic stress, and of a family’s survival and redemption through intergenerational trauma. Ticket prices are $35 and $30 concession and include a light supper after the show where Brett and Bryan will mingle with the audience.
