Starting in 1976, a University of Richmond professor regularly received love poems under his windshield wiper from an anonymous student. He never did find out who left them … but he did help create a play about it. The Windshield Poems, through Nov. 15 at the Firehouse Theatre. Viewing available onsite (limited seating) or livestream.
