Dear Friends,

Fifth Letter Productions is producing their first ever play and we have chosen, The Last Train to Nibroc by Arlene Hutton. Set in the 1940's the play tells the story of two strangers who meet on a cross country train.This funny and touching tale of an unlikely romance follows the two as they search for their own happiness. We love this play and think you will too.

We are tremendously lucky to have the support of Torrington Downtown Partners behind us. They set us up with a neat space right in downtown and we think it's going to be terrific for telling this story. Housed in the old Oddfellows lodge (and prior home to the Nutmeg Ballet), this vintage space on 21 Water Street truly lends itself to creating a unique and intimate setting. We will also have the bragging rights of being the first Actor's Equity company to set up shop in Torrington. So that's pretty cool. 

But it turns out that producing plays is expensive. Really expensive. Just to start production we need to raise $5,500.00 And that doesn't even let us do good stuff, like pay our actors. 

We are incredibly excited at the prospect of creating a professional production of this beautiful play in Torrington. We hope that as you are as passionate about this project as we are. If you are are able to donate anything, even $5 we would be deeply grateful. No amount is too small, and we need your help to make our dream a reality. Thank you so much and we hope to see you in July!

                                                Liz and Ed

What has been written about The Last Train to Nibroc:

"…a gently charming little play, reminiscent of Thornton Wilder in its look at rustic Americans who are to be treasured for their simplicity and directness…" —Associated Press
