This is a classic American serio-comedy that was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Drama (1985). In its simplest form, its a story of friendship and love that spans fifty years all told through love letters exchanged between the two characters - Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner.
While the actual script is read by the actors on the stage, the greatness of this show is how the characters and words are guided and delivered through the two performers. It’s storytelling at its finest. If done well, the audience will laugh out loud and be moved to tears as the stories and relationship unfolds…” says Director Mike Arseneault (Riverbend Players).
“You cannot stage a play more simply than this, and yet it’s about everything in life. First love, loss of opportunities, loss of life, loss of love...It’s a beautiful play, and all you do is speak it.
