Letters from the Trenches: Dear Kit


  • St. John's Baptist Church, Broach Hall 300 Hawthorne Lane Charlotte, NC, 28204 United States (map)

Charlotte performance artist Hardin Minor will present Letters from the Trenches: Dear Kit, a one-man show honoring Minor’s grandfather and celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of World War 1. The text is taken from the letters of  Captain N. Hardin Massie, and read by his grandson Hardin Massie Minor. The performance is inspired by his grandfather Massie’s courtship of his VMI sweetheart, detailed in the almost 200 letters that his grandmother saved dating from 1914 to 1945. His family’s Minor Foundation recently donated these letters along with the scrapbook Captain Massie created to document his service with the AEF from 1917–1919 to the Southern Historical Collection at the Wilson Library of UNC Chapel Hill.
