Letters are a way of presenting yourself in the best possible light,” observes Andrew Makepeace Ladd III, one of two characters in A.R. Gurney’s play Love Letters. And it is through 50 years of correspondence that he and the other character, Melissa Gardner, attempt romance, share passions, and find their real selves. This play is different in that there is no true dialogue — no lines memorized — only two actors on a simple stage reading letters that the characters have written each other from boarding school into late adulthood. Through many twists and turns, and laughs and tragedy, Melissa and Andy come to a certain peace, sort of. – Mary Birdsong
