In 'The Hero's Wife,' Veteran And Young Wife Grapple With PTSD

May 2, 2019

We hear stories about the sacrifices military spouses make. But the wife's perspective is rarely at the center. That's why playwright Aline Lathrop decided to highlight that angle in The Hero's Wife - a play that's showing at Synchronicity Theater in Atlanta. It's an intimate look at a couple dealing with the invisible wounds of combat.


Rebeca Robles plays Karyssa, the young wife of retired Navy SEAL Cameron, played by Joe Sykes. Rachel May directed the play. They all visited On Second Thought to talk about the production and the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, on family life.

The Hero's Wife is showing at Synchronocity Theater in Atlanta until May 5.
