Celebrate Mother’s Day with this romance in letters, a nominee for the 1990 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Andrew and Melissa are childhood friends whose lifelong correspondence begins with birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards. Romantically attached, they continue to exchange letters through boarding school and college years. While Andy is off at war Melissa marries, but her attachment to Andy remains strong and she continues to keep in touch as he marries, becomes a successful attorney, and gets involved in politics. Meanwhile, Melissa faces increasing difficulties in her life. By the end of the play, it is clear how much they really mean to each other and have given to each other over the years. Love Letters, a unique and imaginative theatre piece, is evocative, touching, and funny.
