The Story: U.S. Army Captain Jack Ludwig, a military doctor stationed in Oregon, begins writing to Louise Rabiner, an aspiring actress in New York City, hoping to meet her someday if the war will allow. But as the war continues, it threatens to end their relationship, before it even starts. Tony Award-winning playwright Ken Ludwig tells the joyous, heartwarming story of his parents’ courtship during World War II and the results are anything but expected.
Jack Ludwig – Male identifying, early to mid-thirties, all ethnicities. An Army medical officer serving in the Second World War, stationed in Portland, OR. A bit reserved.
Louise Rabiner – Female identifying, mid-twenties to early thirties, all ethnicities. An aspiring actress from Brooklyn, living in New York City. Outgoing and stylish.
