Tidewater Community College presents
Co-Presented by the TCC chapter of Student Veterans of America
Sunday, April 6 at 7 PM
Inspired by the New York Times article, “The Things They Wrote” and the HBO Documentary Last Letters Home
Adapted by William Massolia
"Letters Home" puts the 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 experience in our ongoing wars. The initial production was critically acclaimed and was nominated for a Joseph Jefferson Award for “Outstanding New Play.”
The Chicago Sun Times calls this play "Extraordinary" and "Deeply Moving", this is a journey you do not want to miss!
