Playwright Delia Knight hones in on what it's like to wait for her best friend and brother to come back home after multiple combat deployments.
In a new episode of KPBS Explore podcast "Incoming," host Justin Hudnall speaks with Knight, whose relationship with her Marine brother suffered – and endured – throughout his deployment and homecoming.
Knight's full-length play, "Disappearing Act," illustrated the agony she witnessed when her brother came back home more in body than mind. Her writing captures her family’s struggles to reconcile what was forever lost and what future they might have together. She also speaks to the role the family plays during and after deployment, and where boundaries need to be drawn for everyone’s best interest.
