Lonely Fish Productions (previous credits include Heathers: The Musical, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) and 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche) presents Love Letters by A.R. Gurney, starring Todd Hanson (Evil Dead: The Musical, Bug and Blackbird) and Amber Hanson (Bug, Communicating Doors and Blackbird) and directed by Karen Sipes (Avenue Q, 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and Blackbird).
Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner. Both born to wealth and position, Andy 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 the boarding school and college years — where Andy goes on to excel at Yale and law school, while Melissa flunks out of a series of “good schools.” 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, gets involved in politics and, eventually, is elected to the U.S. Senate. Meanwhile, her marriage in tatters, Melissa dabbles in art and gigolos, drinks more than she should and becomes estranged from her children. Eventually she and Andy do become involved in a brief affair, but it is really too late for both of them.
