'Hate' Mail' poster

NEW MILFORD — TheatreWorks New Milford’s Page 2 Stage series will present a free virtual staged reading of “Hate Mail,” a comedy by Kira Obolensky and Bill Corbett, on Saturday night, Dec. 19.

In a Dec, 11 announcement, TheatreWorks provided a brief description of the plot. When Preston (Matt Austin) writes a furious letter to a store demanding a refund for a broken snow globe, he gets assistant manager Dahlia (Heather Haneman) fired — and finds a vengeful epistolary match. In this wickedly funny alternative to “Love Letters,” the two embark on an epic, often acrimonious correspondence as their lives intertwine. Whether Preston and Dahlia are joining cults, having breakdowns, shipping each other deceased lizards, or falling in love, “Hate Mail” is a two-person comedy dull of surprises.

A link will be provided on the theater’s website and on social media. This performance will only be shown once on Dec. 19, at 8 p.m. If you have any questions, contact the theater at or call 860-350-6863.
