Many dedicated theatergoers are likely to have seen “Love Letters” at some point since A.R. Gurney’s play arrived in 1988. A cunning little character study of a privileged class, “Love Letters” is frequently produced and rightly so.

The play’s minimal requirements – two veteran actors seated at a table read their texts aloud upon an otherwise empty stage – have made it a mortgage lifter for many a theater company. Especially when bona fide stars or local dignitaries appear in the show.
