An acclaimed and renowned play, Love Letters has had multiple Broadway productions, a television adaption, and was even a Pulitzer-Prize finalist for Drama. Simple, yet powerful, the story follows two characters through a life-long love affair recounted through their letters exchanged over a lifetime. As poignant today as ever, the lovers are forever physically apart, though spiritually connected. They share with each other life’s joys and struggles and ultimately learn that happiness is found in the relationships we build, rather than the elements of a material life. Don’t miss this unique theatrical format that combines the art of storytelling with the nostalgic beauty of first and true love.

About the play:
Andrew and Melissa are childhood friends whose lifelong correspondence begins with birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards. Romantically attached, they continue to exchange letters through the boarding school and college years—where Andy goes on to excel at Yale and law school, while Melissa flunks out of a series of “good schools.” Through their letters we hear of their struggles, their joys, and their search for satisfaction. Though physically apart, they are as spiritually connected as true lovers can be. We learn that happiness is found in the relationships we build, rather than the elements of a material life.
