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.

Contains mild adult language and content.

Love Letters is presented by special permission with Dramatists, Inc.

Born of the American Little Theatre Movement, Rome Little Theatre is proud to be one of the oldest community theatres in the country.  From its founding in 1933 to its WWII hiatus and its 1956 revival, and from its residencies at the Gordon Theatre and the Maple Street Community Center to its current home at the Historic DeSoto Theatre, RLT is woven artfully into the rich, historical fabric of Rome, Georgia.

For decades, RLT has been committed to entertaining, engaging, and educating our community through the practice and promotion of the theatre arts. Our success is built on the generous contributions of generations of volunteers, donors, and patrons.

The mission of RLT is to present amateur theatrical productions, encourage interest in drama, and contribute to the cultural and educational life of the community. RLT is an active supporter of the Arts in Rome and Floyd County. 

RLT is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.
