October 19 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Letters Home puts the recent 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, without politicizing, gives audiences a powerful portrait of the soldier’s experience in the ongoing war. The initial production in 2007 was critically acclaimed and was nominated for a Joseph Jefferson Award for “Outstanding New Play.” Presented by the Griffin Theatre Company, supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, this performance takes place on Thursday, October 19th at 7:30 p.m. in the Watson Theater. Tickets are free for Veterans, $30 for adults, $15 for Non-Coker students, and free for Faculty, Staff and Students with a Coker ID. Head over to www.coker.edu/vpa-tickets/ and reserve your seats.
