About Love Letters

Love Letters first opened in New York in 1989 and was a finalist in the 1990 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Gaining huge popularity, it has since played in theatres across the globe, attracting both real-life and on-screen couples to star as the protagonists.

When the young Andrew Makepeace Ladd III accepts an invitation to Melissa Gardner’s birthday party, Melissa writes him a thank you note… and a unique romantic friendship and delicately warm correspondence destined to last for almost half a century is born.

LOVE LETTERS is the tender, tragi-comic, and irresistible story of the shared nostalgia, missed opportunities, and deep closeness of two lifelong, complicated friends. A play that could have been written for the Covid era about two people physically separated yet brought together by candid communication and shared confidences, a romance blossoming across the miles and the years.

Two people writing to each other has become somewhat of a lost art in recent years. Nowadays, it’s easier to communicate by sending a text message or “nudging” their online profiles. But, what would happen if writing letters blossomed into a romantic friendship. That’s what happens in Love Letters, following Andrew as he accepts an invitation to a birthday party for Melissa. Her thank you note starts their connection; their lives are together forevermore.

Even though Love Letters was written three decades ago, its themes are more relevant than ever. Just because people are separated, doesn’t mean you should be lonely. Time makes the heart grow fonder too, with each love letter touching the heart as strongly as the first.

Love Letters is the first play to reopen the Theatre Royal Haymarket.
