Join us for the first in Quill Theatre’s 2017-18 Historical Reading Series – For the Duration: Letters from Home.
When the United States was attacked on December 7th, 1941 at Pearl Harbor by Japanese forces, President Roosevelt asked Congress to declare war on Japan. Within an hour of his speech, the United States had officially entered World War II. And when hundreds of thousands of Americans decided to immediately enlist in service of their country, they didn’t know how long they’d be away. They were simply enlisted “for the duration.”
This one night only unique event will feature readings of real letters written by and to soldiers in World War II. There will be a talkback and refreshments following the performance.
