Join us for a journey through the life long relationship of Andy and Melissa, the two characters of A.R. Gurney’s famous play, Love Letters. Experience the emotional reliving of two separate tumultuous lives bonded together by a shared love sustained by letters.

Gurney has said that his play “…is designed simply to be read aloud by an actor and an actress of roughly the same age, sitting side by side at a table, in front of a group of people of any size.” The Wall Street Journal heralded it as “exhilarating, funny, and moving.

Our Phelps Mansion production features actors Bill Gorman and Judy McMahon as Andy and Melissa reliving a friendship that began in second grade.
