FARMINGTON — “Letters,” a one-act play, will be presented at 6:15 p.m. Tuesday, April 26, in the Emery Community Arts Center on the campus of the University of Maine at Farmington, 111 South St.

Directed by Meg Scully, the play depicts a man at war writing and receiving letters from his love ones back home about how they cope while he is away.

Scully, a 2012 Winthrop High School graduate, is a UMF senior majoring in theatre. This show is her senior class project.

Last year, Scully met Travis Mills at Farmington when he came to speak at the college. It was then that she decided what she wanted to do for her senior piece.

“Letters” is written by David Setchell, a former drama teacher at Winthrop. The show was originally performed in 2010 for the One Act Play festivals. It won several awards that year including top score at the regional festival. At the state festival, it took awards for acting, prop design, choreography, lighting and special cast accommodations.

“Letters” is the tale of casualties of war as seen by the letters written to and from a young man. You see his struggles to remain close to the ones he has left behind and how those at home deal with him being away.

Donations are appreciated and all proceeds will benefit the Travis Mills Foundation, a nonprofit organization to benefit and assist wounded and injured veterans and their families; visit
