The 26-time award winning WGTD Radio Theater continues their seasonRacine resident Barbara Tylla was looking through her mother’s old cedar chest and happened upon a packet of old letters.  In these letters, Tylla found her family’s story of strong women, loving men, and life in the 1930s and early 1940s in northern Wisconsin.  She took the letters and wrote a play where despite the challenges of the Great Depression and the early days of World War II, love conquers all.  Barb, though, goes beyond just telling a story of her family and tells us how this is a story of all of our families in this charming play.  The WGTD Radio Theater brought this radio adaptation of Tylla’s play to the airwaves in 2013 and again in 2014. It was performed live on April 9, 2022 at 11:15 a.m. at the Racine campus of Gateway Technical College, in the Student Commons area.
