Leroy, back from two tours in Iraq and hoping for some inspiration for his highly anticipated homecoming speech, turns to his favorite war story, Henry V.  In doing so he conjures the magnetic King Henry and follows him on his epic journey towards victory and glory.  But the belligerent specters that patrol Leroy’s mind want him to tell a different war story – his own. Thou Proud Dream uses the landscape of north Evanston’s community golf course to paint the scene of a classic tale cast in the contemporary light of our modern, warring world.
