LAFOLLETTE, TN. (WLAF)- Tickets for Postmark LaFollette’s “The Letter Box” are on sale.
“The Letterbox” takes place in LaFollette’s old post office and highlights the story of the building and the people who passed through its doors.
The play is “based during the period of 1930″s through WWII. The creative use of actual letters that came through the former LaFollette Post Office as well as stories that have been told over time are reproduced on the stage in the old sorting room of the Post Office,” according to organizers.
There will be multiple performances, with shows running on Nov. 10, 11, 12, 17th, 18 and 19. Tickets are $10
The “Letterbox” was the first play Postmark initially presented, according to Postmark LaFollette Board Chair Gale Stanley. It was written by a group of local artists.
“It tells the story of our community through letters written between friends and family members that passed through the doors of the old LaFollette Post Office. Sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, and sometimes reflective, the play tracks both the daily and major events that shaped our families and lives through the Great Depression, World War II, the formation of TVA, and other experiences,” Stanley said.
“The vignettes were written based on letters, stories and journals of family members,” according to organizers.
Postmark LaFollette has developed and produced several plays, all written by local story tellers and all performed by local actors.
