Years ahead of its time, W. Somerset Maugham’s 1933 play shows the impact of war on civilian life and suggests that the ideals of honor, patriotism, and glory mean nothing if we show no care for the victims of conflict.
FOR SERVICES RENDERED runs May 19 – July 6 at The Den Theatre, 1331 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood. For more information visit griffintheatre.com.
