Love Letters - Performance and Fundraiser

Love Letters is a two-person play told in correspondence over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner are two people from similar backgrounds who take very different paths in life. Both born to wealth and position, Andrew and Melissa are childhood friends whose lifelong communication of letters begins with birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards. They continued to send letters during boarding school, college, and beyond. Despite leading entirely separate lives, they can't let go of each other and maintain a 50-year correspondence. The letters reveal how much they really mean to each other and much they give and receive--physically apart, but spiritually as close as only true lovers can be.
