In LETTERS OF SURESH, playwright Rajiv Joseph reveals intimate mysteries through a series of letters between strangers, friends, daughters, and lovers — many with little in common but a hunger for human connection. ​Sending their hopes and dreams across oceans and years, they seek peace in one another while dreaming of a city once consumed by the scourge of war. ​A companion piece to Joseph’s play Animals Out of Paper, LETTERS OF SURESH is the latest work from the Pulitzer Prize-short listed playwright hailed as “wonderfully daring, imaginative, and compassionate” (The New York Times).

 

The full creative team for Letters of Suresh includes scenic design by Mikiko Suzuki; costume design by Amy Clark; lighting design by Jiyoun Chang; sound design by Charles Coes & Nathan Roberts; projection design by Shawn Duan; casting by The Telsey Office.

 

LETTERS OF SURESH is the recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award. The play was commissioned with support from the Time Warner Foundation.
