A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, A.R. Gurney's Love Letters became an instant smash hit that was performed all over the country. The universality of the piece quickly led to the play being translated into 24 languages. In the last 26 years, productions of Love Letters have played in over 40 countries around the world.

Love Letters is a disarmingly funny and unforgettably emotional portrait about the powerful connection of love. Two friends, rebellious Melissa Gardner and straight-arrow Andrew Makepeace Ladd III have exchanged notes, cards and letters with each other for over 50 years. From second grade, through summer vacations, to college, and well into adulthood, they have spent a lifetime discussing their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, and victories and defeats. But long after the letters are done, the real question remains: Have they made the right choices or is the love of their life only a letter away?
