When Preston writes a furious letter to a store demanding a refund for a broken snow globe, he gets assistant manager Dahlia 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 full of surprises at every turn.
