About this show

Letters Home puts the current 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. Without politicizing, the play gives audiences a powerful portrait of the soldier experience in the ongoing wars. The initial production was critically acclaimed and was nominated for a Joseph Jefferson Award for "outstanding New Play."
