Letters to Medford: A Play About the Past According to the Future (2016)
Written by Kyna Hamill & Directed by Wanda Strukus
If you missed this lively and local production in 2014, Two Roads Performance Projects is pleased to remount the play during the 100th anniversary of the Medford Historical Society & Museum. Letters to Medford is inspired by a “Letter to Future Medford 2055” that historian, Charles Brooks, wrote in his History of Medford in 1855. See MHSM transformed into a theatre as history and the present collide when Charles Brooks, Lydia Maria Child, and Lucy Osgood confront the archivist who wants to protect their history and meet Medford teens who remain anxious about what the future holds for them.
