Inspired by The New York Times article “The Things They Wrote” and the subsequent HBO documentary Last Letters Home, this production is a powerful presentation of actual letters written by soldiers serving in Afghanistan and Iraq (as well as some correspondence from their parents). Using minimal props and set pieces, members of the Griffin Theatre Company perform the letters as dramatic monologues, set against a backdrop of imagery taken directly from soldiers’ blogs and websites. Without politicizing, the play gives audiences an emotional and gripping portrait of the soldiers’ experiences. Pre-performance lecture at 6 p.m.
