Troupe remembers 'Hometown Heroes'



The last time playwright Ed Graczyk was in Cincinnati, it was six years ago, on closing night of Hometown Heroes at Playhouse in the Park. He's back in Cincinnati this weekend for Hometown Heroes, a timely drama about veterans, at Mariemont Players.

"I never had the play published so it's word-of-mouth that keeps it alive. I've had lots of interest recently, though, so someone is talking."

Heroes continues through next Sunday at Walton Creek Theater, 4101 Walton Creek Road. It's directed by Ginny Weil and features Walt Luthy and Arny Stoller. For reservations and information call the box office at 684-1236.
