An ongoing collection of songs setting selections from 40 abandoned postcards discovered and compiled by playwright Gary Winter. Found over years of Gary’s antique-store and used-bookseller browsing, the brief, sometimes enigmatic messages in these postcards are forever frozen in time, and they offer a curious glimpse into capricious sentiments of sweetness, disappointment, sorrow, playfulness, and wonder. Three are set so far, with several more planned to complete the collection.

Genres:   Vocal
