Letters Home, performed by the Griffin Theatre Company, puts the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq front and center by bringing to life actual letters written by soldiers serving in the Middle East. This play gives audiences a powerful portrait of the soldiers’ experiences while deployed and separated from family and loved ones.

 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 FrontLetters Home From America’s Military FamilyFaith of Our Sons, and Keeping Faith.
