Love Letters by AR Gurney
Melissa Gardner and Andrew Ladd III grew up in a time when notes and invitations came by way of the postman. Their friendship began with a birthday party invitation as children and continued throughout their lives.
Performed in an intimate theater setting, the characters enter the theater to take their seats and share with you their lives and their memories carefully chronicled in their letters to each written over the course of 50 years.
As an audience member, you'll appreciate the elegant dessert and choice of wine or non-alcoholic beverage at intermission. As a theater evening, this is definitely one to be shared with the one you love...
Get to know the goodness and wit of Andy, appreciate the wild and sensuous Melissa. Often filled with laughter, and often evidencing frustration with each other and their lives, the characters in Love Letters demonstrate a commitment to each other through the years that is at once admirable and almost inconceivable.
This Pulitzer nominated play provides a showcase for the actors as they travel from childhood to summer camps, from boarding schools to military service, from marriage to children, through divorce, illness, love affairs, success and simple daily living. The characters have a deep and abiding friendship that few of us have the good fortune to enjoy. Just when it seems improbable, the friendship moves to love, missed connections, and forever loving.
An affirmation of love that acknowledges friendship as perhaps the single most important aspect of lifelong relationships.
