A unique and imaginative theatre piece, LOVE LETTERS is made up of letters exchanged over a lifetime between Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner, two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences through correspondence. Beginning with birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards, Love Letters follows Andy and Melissa through college, marriage and careers. The evening becomes a touching and frequently funny journey between two compelling characters that share a life and love through letters. LOVE LETTERS was a Puliltzer Prize finalist 1990.
