MAHWAH – “The Things They Carried,” a collection of short pieces about Tim O’Brien’s experiences in Viet Nam, will be brought to life by American Place Theatre’s Literature to Life series Tuesday, October 14 at 2 p.m. in the Sharp Theater on the campus of Ramapo College of New Jersey.

Considered a masterwork of contemporary literature, “The Things They Carried” portrays O’Brien’s experiences during the Vietnam War.  He presents a blurred line between truth and reality and fact and fiction that makes his journey unforgettable.  This one-hour adaptation features pre- and post-show discussions.
