"An extraordinary portrait of second chances"

Chicago Sun-Times

In this "airtight masterpiece," (Chicago Reader) Lettie is newly
released from prison and eager to regain custody of her teenage
children. Hailed by Variety as "over-the-top superb," Boo Killebrew's
powerful, moving, and surprisingly funny play follows the heartbreak
and hope of a family trying to mend amid harsh realities.

Recommended for ages 14+ for language and descriptions of drug use

"Lettie" is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.

Individual Sponsors: Katie & Bill McNabb
