‘Cal in Camo:’ Portraying the Real, Heartfelt Conflicts of Relationships

Lyrical and mysterious, “Cal in Camo” probes the nature of bonding in family relationships. With heart aching humor, William Hoffman’s play explores the revelations we all resist while overcoming the obstacles that need conquering.

“There is a wild poetry afoot here; bringing to the forefront the expectations we put on ourselves, our families, our relationships, our children,” says director Amy Harmon. “It’s like a primal pulse that develops into a tome, animalistic yet delicate, about fighting for ones individual survival while trying to save the pack.”

“Cal in Camo” received its world premiere in May of 2016 at the Rattlestick Playwrights Theater in New York City. Hoffman was a member of the Rivendell Theatre Ensemble in Chicago, Illinois, and is a current member of the Actor’s Gym in Los Angeles, California, where he resides.


Director Amy K. Harmon helmed the world premiere production of “And Then They Fell,” by Tira Palquist, and “Pack Up the Moon” by Christina Cigala for Brimmer Street Theatre Company. For Equity Fights AIDS, she directed “Scenes from A Marriage,” by Michael Rex, and “A Poster of the Cosmos” by Lanford Wilson. On stage at Rogue Machine, she played Sandy in the world premiere of Vince Melocchi’s “Nice Things,” and has numerous film and TV credits, which include co-starring roles in HBO’s “American Splendor,” and ABC’s “Scandal,” “Castle,” and “Inside the Box.”


The cast includes Tim Cummings as Flynt, Bree Turner as Cal and Brad Raider as Tim.
