Award winning play “Letters Home”pays homage
to our veterans at the Schorr Stage!
Johnson City – The Goodwill Theatre presents Griffin Theatre’s production of Letters Home on Saturday November 3 at 7p.m. and Sunday November 4 at 2p.m. at the Schorr Stage. This show is proudly sponsored by Lockheed Martin.
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. The play, adapted by artistic director and founder William Massolia, gives audiences a powerful portrait of the soldier experience in the ongoing war. The initial production was critically acclaimed and was nominated for a Joseph Jefferson Award for “Outstanding New Play.”
