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 play gives audiences a powerful portrait of the soldier experience. These letters were written under the most difficult of circumstances; the disorientation of training, deployment, separation from family and loved ones and combat, and occupation duties in Afghanistan and Iraq. They help define for the audience patriotism and what it means to serve our country today, through acts of bravery, compassion, social responsibility, sense of community and brotherhood. More importantly, the play reveals the humanity that lies within the war as seen through the eyes of the men and women fighting it.
