When Melissa writes a thank-you note to Andrew –  a romantic friendship and correspondence destined to last for decades is born. Both from affluent, East Coast families,  the friends communicate with each other through angst-ridden boarding school experiences, European adventures, failed marriages, and the ups and downs of career. Despite the painful differences, they remain each other’s most trusted confidante, and are “true lovers” on paper.

A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters is a tender, tragi-comic, and nuanced examination of the shared nostalgia, missed opportunities, and deep closeness of two lifelong, complicated friends.  While spanning five decades and numerous locations, it is staged simply, with two actors behind desks or sitting in cozy chairs, letting their words describe a world of emotion.
