Written by an ensemble of actors who served in Vietnam, “Tracers” explores their military training and combat, but is primarily concerned with the rigors of companionship and loyalty within a platoon of soldiers. The play finds the horror and solace within relationships among men at war, and the ties that link them to the battles, long after the guns go silent.
