World Premiere commissioned by Forward Theater

Elise Sabato is thrilled when her husband Brad returns from his deployment in Iraq, and their plans for a life and family together can finally be realized. But it soon becomes clear that for Brad, coming home is only the beginning of a long journey. It is up to Elise to find help for a man she no longer recognizes, who suffers from injuries that neither of them can see or understand.

With a story set in Madison, and written and adapted by Wisconsin authors, Learning to Stay asks what you would do when the person you’re married to is no longer the person you married.
