We hosted a special one-night performance of The Box to raise awareness of the alarming rates of homelessness, PTSD and suicide among our nation’s veteran population.
The Box is a one-man tragicomic play about a homeless Vietnam Veteran who suffers from PTSD. “Jack” is a philosopher, a theologian, a humorist, a lover, a fighter and a survivor who lives and sleeps in a box in a secluded woods of St. Augustine, Florida. “The Box” was recently made into a movie and has been accepted to the Sundance Film Festival.
The play is written and performed by Lee Weaver of Lee Weaver Ministries. Weaver specializes in combining preaching with drama and humor to create compelling and memorable experiences. Additionally he presents Peter - The Big Fisherman; Judas - the Betrayer and Joseph - The Husband of Mary. To learn more about the performer visit here or on facebook.
Weaver’s theatrical production company is named Special OPS (One Person Shows). His other notable plays include “The Secret - The Spanish Inquisition in Old Florida,” (presented at the Fringe Drama Festival in NYC in 2014), a play about religious intolerance. “The Witness” - about the Civil Rights struggle in the 1960’s in which he portrays a former, self-confessed racist thug. This summer he will debut “The Shooter,” a drama about violence in America.
Proceeds from the performance benefited the Rutherford Food Pantry.
