We are pleased to announce our return to indoor performances with a limited run of A.R. Gurney's classic, LOVE LETTERS, a production that aligns with our commitments to quality theatre and community safety.
Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner, both born to wealth and position, are childhood friends whose lifelong correspondence begins with birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards. They continue to exchange letters through the boarding school and college years—where Andy goes on to excel at Yale and law school, and Melissa flunks out of a series of "good schools". Over the course of 50 years, they discuss the hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, victories and defeats, that have passed between them through their separated lives. However, Andy's last letter makes it eloquently clear how much they really meant and gave to each other over the years—physically apart, perhaps, but spiritually as close as only true lovers can be.
Love Letters is staged simply, with two actors reading their lifelong, complicated friendship to each other through letters.
