The One Man Play
Start date – End date
Sergeant Alvin York was one of the most decorated WW1 soldiers of the U.S. Army. He received the Medal of honor for killing 28 German soldiers and singlehandedly capturing 132 others in the Battle of the Argonne Forest, France. Gary Cooper won an Academy Award for best actor portraying Alvin York in the beloved 1941 film, Sergeant York.
The one-man play, SGT. YORK: WW1 HERO tells the story of York’s WW1 success, but also dramatizes what York accomplished in his community following the war. York built roads into Pall Mall and constructed the Alvin C. York Institute, which forever changed the lives of the people of The Valley of the Three Forks of the Wolf.
