World premiere written by Michael I. Walker & directed by Adam Fitzgerald

From critically acclaimed Ground UP Productions comes Michael I. Walker's edgy and exhilarating new play.  Three young Americans meet while studying abroad in Belgium. When their wit, charm and sex appeal cast a spell over a wealthy older gentleman, it seems like a golden opportunity to explore a new world. LETTER FROM ALGERIA reveals a world of class envy and emotional manipulation that dwell just below the surface of the ex-pat life, where everyone is trying to reinvent themselves.

Sex. Drugs. Empire. Everyone's got something to write home about.
