Dougherty County -- This week the drama of U.S. families waiting at home while their loved ones serve overseas, will be the subject of a play at Albany's Marine Base.

Monday afternoon the sets were being built at the Base Theater for the performance "Letters From the Front." The play is set in World War Two but revolves around real letters written by service members and their loved ones throughout America's military history.

The performers have been on tour since May, putting on the play that is especially relevant today. Cast member Melanie Collup said "That's what we see mostly in the play, is how the people left on the home front are responding to things happening in their lives and overseas in the lives of their loved ones."

The play "Letters from the Front" will have performances Tuesday and Wednesday nights at 7 at the Base Theatre, and a few tickets are still available.

 Admission is free and open to the public, but you must get a ticket. You can get one at the Albany Chamber of Commerce, Cracker Barrel Restaurant, or the Albany Mall.
