October 25, 2016 – Letters Home

letters-from-homeLetters Home puts the current wars in 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 theNew York TimesOp-Ed article, “The Things They Wrote” and the subsequent HBO documentaryLast Letters Home. The production also 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 experience in the ongoing war. The initial production was critically acclaimed and was nominated for a Joseph Jefferson Award for “Outstanding New Play.”

October 26, 2016 – Ghosts of War

ghosts-of-warGhosts of War is based on a true story, inspired by the memoir of a 19-year-old Army Reservist and Iraq War veteran, Ryan Smithson. In his poignant, often harrowing account, and especially vivid in sensory details, he chronicles his experiences in basic training and Iraq. The production offers an unflinchingly honest portrait of the physical and psychological brutality of his experience. Ryan also lucidly recounts the intensity of battle and the pain of losing comrades, and manages to find personal enlightenment through his war experience. Griffin Theatre Company’s mission is to create extraordinary and meaningful theatrical experiences that build bridges of understanding between generations while cultivating an appreciation of the performing arts.
