    Letters From Rebecca is a play for two actors reading selected letters from a 12 year correspondence between Rebecca Bruns, a New Orleans writer, and Michael Corrigan from San Francisco. The letters were written before email and the Internet exploded, and concern love, art, writing, travel, and relationships. The letters take a dark turn when Rebecca is diagnosed with cancer. The play opened in Ketchum, Idaho and was subsequently broadcast by NPR Playhouse. Rebecca was a dear friend and a wonderful writer. This play is meant to celebrate Rebecca's memory and give her a voice, once more, through her eloquent yet earthy letters.
