’Letters Home’ Offers A Powerful Portrait of the American Soldier Experience
Young Auditorium – Tuesday, November 9th at 7:30 PM | Tickets $24.25 (12 & under $15.50)

A must see for veterans, military members and supporters, Letters Home is a moving
theatrical production that brings to life actual letters written by soldiers serving in the Middle East. Young
Auditorium presents this highly relevant performance on Tuesday, November 9th at 7:30 pm.
Produced by Chicago’s Griffin Theatre Company, Letters Home puts the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq front and
center, using actual communications from American soldiers as the source material for this eye-opening
performance. Written under the most difficult of circumstances these letters evoke emotional responses
regarding the disorientation of training, deployment day, separation from family and loved ones, as well as
actual combat and occupation duties. Without politicizing, Letters Home gives audiences a powerful portrait of
the true soldier experience. This production is inspired by the New York Times op-ed article, “The Things They
Wrote,” and the subsequent HBO documentary, Last Letters Home.

“Extraordinary, Deeply Moving! The emotional impact of this 90-minute journey is profound.”
—Chicago Sun Times
