by A. R. Gurney

LOVE LETTERS is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.

Tonight's presentation is performed by Rose Graziano and Jay Krass.

LOVE LETTERS is a tribute to a lifelong love affair and is a perfect way to celebrate love, laughter, joy, and longing. The play is about the relationship between two people and is told through a series of letters written over a lifetime. The letters take them through the discoveries of childhood, the disappointments of adolescence, the awkwardness of first sex, the intoxication of ambition, acceptance of unfulfilled dreams, and the belated understanding that there is no tomorrow. The story is told by two actors reading the letters.

LOVE LETTERS was presented at The Long Wharf Theatre, November 4, 1988-December 11, 1988 (M. Edgar Rosenblum, Executive Director; Arvin Brown, Artistic Director), and has had many revivals, featuring actors including Kathleen Turner, George Grizzard, Philip Bosco, Julie Harris, Anthony Heald, Richard Kiley, Dana Ivey, William Hurt, Christopher Reeve, George Segal, Robert Vaughn, Timothy Hutton, Elizabeth Taylor, and James Earl Jones. 

**This work is protected by copyright and may not be recorded.**
