Next up: "Love Letters"

"Love Letters" A.R. Gurney's two person play was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. The story is told by two actors sitting side by side reading cards and  letters written to one another over a lifetime of correspondence in which they share their hopes, dreams, ambitions, victories and failures. Friends, sometime lovers, they share a bond through their life which can only be described as true love.
