Reno, NV. Tom Burmester’s Nation of Two continues the 25th anniversary season at Brüka Theatre on March 16th, 2018. The second installment of Tom Burmester’s, War Cycle, Nation of Two follows the lives of the Harper family as they prepare to scatter the ashes of 24-year-old Lt. Michael Harper on the anniversary of his combat-related death in the Iraq War. A surprise visit from a soldier who served with Michael at the time of his death ignites a powder keg of emotion and throws the family into crisis as they strive to preserve their memories of Michael while learning to let go.

Nation of Two is a contemporary family war drama directed by Chase McKenna.
