Medal of Honor Rag
Sacramento, CA 95816
Based on a true story of a Vietnam vet with PTSD, Medal of Honor Rag is, unfortunately, all too timely, given our current wars. Directed by Janis Stevens, the play packs a wallop in an hour, as returned vet D.J. Jackson (Isaac Williams) lives through a session with his psychiatrist (Patrick Murphy), who survived Nazi concentration camps while his family died. Great performances in a very tightly woven, emotionally fraught story. F, Sa 8pm; Su 2pm. Through 11/27. $12-$15. California Stage, 2509 R St.; (916) 451-5822; www.calstage.org.
