LOVE LETTERS is a unique and imaginative theatre piece that was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play centers on two characters, Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III, who are childhood friends and their lifelong correspondence begins with birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards. Romantically attached, they continue to exchange letters through boarding school, college years, and throughout their life. The audience sees how much they really mean, and give to each other over the years— although much of the time they are physically apart, but spiritually as close as only true lovers can be. As the actors read the letters aloud, what is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny, but very revealing and meaningful story of two lives.
