Williams’s phantasmagorical play is set in a plaza of a teeming tropical seaport where the rules are not always clear and the dangers real.

Captain Rob Wellman's perfect life starts to unravel when a fellow veteran seeking justice shows up threatening to expose a hidden past.

American Hero is the recipient of the Steinberg Award Citation from the American Theatre Critics Association.
