Theater: Love Letters

June 4, 2022 at 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm

SC4 presents Love Letters by A.R. Gurney.

This SC4 production under the direction of Jay McCulloch and is part of the Port Huron Theatre District Festival.

Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner, both born to wealth and position, 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.” Eventually she and Andy do become involved in a brief affair, but it is really too late for both of them. However, Andy’s last letter, written to her mother after Melissa’s untimely death, makes it eloquently clear how much they really meant, and gave to, each other over the years – physically apart, perhaps, but spiritually as close as only true lovers can be.

Performances 8 p.m. June 3; 3 and 8 p.m. June 4, and 3 p.m. June 5.
LOCATION: SC4 Fine Arts Theatre

Advance tickets for this performance are available online or at the door.
