BWW Review: 84 CHARING CROSS ROAD, Richmond Theatre

In an age of Instant Messenger, Snapchat and Twitter, many of us may have never experienced the quiet thrill of receiving a handwritten, personal letter. 84 Charing Cross Road is James Roose-Evans' adaptation of Helene Hanff's charming and very personal book of letters. It goes back to a time when people not only hand wrote correspondence, but had to buy their books from a physical bookshop, rather than clicking to purchase them online. The story is an account of the New York playwright's own twenty-year relationship with the manager of Marks & Co. bookshop, conducted entirely through letters.

Hollywood Legend Stefanie Powers Comes to Darlington in 84 CHARING CROSS ROAD

Adapted from Helene Hanff's best-selling book, 84 Charing Cross Road has been delighting audiences since it's premiere in 1981. A tender and heart-warming take of transatlantic friendship, this bittersweet comedy is based on the extraordinary true story of the remarkable relationship that developed over 20 years between a vivacious New York writer and a London bookseller. Through their exchange of humorous and often intimate correspondence a snapshot of Britain from the post-war 1940's to the swinging 60's is revealed, alongside a touching human story that still resonates today.
