“Love Letters” is a play by A. R. Gurney that centers on two characters, Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III, two childhood friends from families of means (though Melissa’s is wealthier, as she frequently points out), whose lifelong correspondence begins with birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards. For the next 50 years, through personal triumphs and despair, through wars and marriages and children and careers, they discuss, via letters, the hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, victories and defeats that have passed between them throughout their separated lives.
The play will be presented in the traditional manner: very simply, with two actors reading from the script, as if from letters.
