HPPR is proud to introduce you to Letters by Mrs. Evelyn Merritt. Letters is a Reader’s Theatre script chronicling correspondence between the battlefront and home. Letters from wars ranging from the US Civil War up to the Iraq War are interwoven in this visceral and theatrical piece. A real gem.
For many wars, letters home were the only form of communication between soldiers and their loved ones. Letters is thought-provoking and character-driven. It's not hard to see Marie, Jim, Caleb, Sarah, Harriet and Robert reaching out with pen and paper.
Join us for this special live broadcast of the HPPR Radio Theater right after A Prairie Home Companion at 7:00 pm central time Saturday, April 11. Letters is a co-production of the Garden City Recreation Commission and High Plains Public Radio.
