Love Letters in the Presidential Ballroom
Love Letters is a play by Albert Ramsdell Gurney Jr. and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1990. The play is unique as there is no set, virtually no props beyond what you see on the stage and there are no staged entrances and exits. This type of play is known in the theater world as a "stage reading." It relies heavily on the content of the dialogue and the interpretation of the actors.
Join us for a special evening in the Presidential Ballroom of Omni Mount Washington Hotel for a a compelling story of a life long relationship between two friends, Melissa Gardner and Andy Ladd. The only interaction between the actors is through their letter writing which begins in childhood and spans over 50 years, revealing a caring but complex relationship.
