Letters Sent showcases a woman's desperation stemming in suffering in silence as well as the egocentric and narcissistic tendencies that sometimes reveal themselves during times of crisis. As Claire strives for recovery on her own terms, it becomes quite clear that those around her have their own secret burdens in the form of behavioral disorders and unhealthy coping mechanisms. A journey through the mental health of one family, Letters Sent confronts, living, dying and the thoughts that manifest in between.

This play was inspired by the well known dream that many people in professional and amateur theatre have, that they go must perform in a play that they have inexplicably never been to rehearsals for, and for which they know neither the lines or the plot. So in this play George is an accountant who wanders onto an empty stage, not certain where he is or how he got there. The stage manager informs him he’s the understudy, and must go on in a few minutes. George doesn’t know his name, doesn’t think he’s an actor (“I think I’m an accountant”), and has no idea what play he’s supposed to do.
