Letters Home puts the war of Afghanistan and 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. Without politicizing, the play gives audiences a powerful portrait of the soldier experience in our ongoing wars. The initial production at Chicago’s Griffin Theatre Company was critically acclaimed and nominated for a Joseph Jefferson Award for “Outstanding New Play.” Letters Home reveals the humanity that lies within the war as seen through the eyes of the men and women who are still fighting and dying in those wars today.

The Screwtape Letters creates a topsy-turvy morally inverted universe set in an eerily stylish office in hell, where God is called the “Enemy” and the Devil is referred to as “Our Father Below.” The National Tour of The Screwtape Letters kicked off after a hit nine-month run at the Westside Theatre in New York City where it entertained 50,000 theatergoers. Prior to that, The Screwtape Letters was a sold-out hit in Chicago and Washington D. C. where it ran for a combined eight months.
