Letters Home, Griffin Theatre Company
October 19 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$30
Letters Home puts the recent wars in Afghanistan & Iraq front and center by bringing to life actual letters written by soldiers serving in the Middle East. The production is inspired by the New York Times Op-Ed Article “The Things They Wrote” and the subsequent HBO documentary “Last Letters Home,” and additionally uses letters and correspondences from Frank Schaeffer’s books, Voices From the Front: Letters Home From America’s Military Family, Faith of Our Sons, and Keeping Faith. The play, without politicizing, gives audiences a powerful portrait of the soldier’s experience in the ongoing war. The initial production in 2007 was critically acclaimed and was nominated for a Joseph Jefferson Award for “Outstanding New Play.” Presented by the Griffin Theatre Company.
