A Comedy by Bill Corbett & Kira Obolensky
August 13 to 29, 2021

When Preston writes a furious letter to a store demanding a refund for a broken snow globe, he gets assistant manager Dahlia fired—and that kicks off an epic (mail) battle between the two. Whether Preston and Dahlia are joining cults, having breakdowns, shipping each other deceased lizards or falling in love, Hate Mail is full of surprises at every turn.
