True Blood star Rutina Wesley has signed on for a lead role in “One Night…,” the much anticipated play from Pulitzer Prize-winner Charles Fuller (“A Soldier’s Play”– known to movie fans as “A Soldier’s Story”).

Rutina stars opposite Grantham Coleman in this play that asks, “What happens to our servicemen and women when they come home?” Specifically, it explores what is happening to women in the US Armed Forces when their decision to serve exposes them to an unforeseen battle against their fellow soldiers.

    War makes me sick to my stomach. Being a soldier is one of the worst jobs ever, and with 1 out of 3 women being raped while serving their country it’s not worth it.

      And yet I will thank each and every one of them for making the choice and the sacrifice to fight for my country. And I’m willing to bet that no soldier will ever tell you that his or hers is the “worst job ever”.

        My father is an ex soldier and he sais it was the worst job ever. But it was while we were a comunist country, so that might have had an impact.
