    What happens to youth when it's sent to war?
     
    Upon return from his first tour of Afghanistan, 19 year old Miles isn't quite himself. Noises don't sound the same. People don't look the same. Pizza doesn't taste the same.
     
    The harder he tries to act normal, the harder it gets to be normal. And all his loved ones' attempts to help him just keep making things worse.
     
    The play oscillates between multiple time lines. We get to see glimpses of the child that was Miles Weppler before he signed up for the army. The man he's become post war. We get an intimate view into what motivates a young man towards the military, what motivates him to stay in the military, and why he wants to stay in the military at any cost.
     
    Through the eyes of his therapist he's just a lost boy. Through the eyes of his girlfriend he's a stubborn and sometimes scary man. Through the eyes of his best friend, he's paranoid. And through the not-so-best friend's eyes, Weppler's just a dick.
     
    Warheads is a punchy urban drama based on a true story.
