There is a short rehearsal period for this two-hander as we get started again, but actors dont have to memorise the lines, as they read the love letters on stage to each other. It was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play centres on two characters, Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III.

Using the epistolary form sometimes found in novels, they sit side by side at tables and read the notes, letters and cards in which over nearly 50 years, they discuss their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, victories and defeats that have passed between them throughout their separated lives The play has been performed by many famous couples and individuals, as it does not require the lines to be memorised, as the letters between the characters are read on stage. In the last few years, couples whove performed it include: Brian Dennehy and Mia Farrow, Alan Alda and Candice Bergen, Angelica Huston and Stacy Keach, Patrick Duffey and Linda Gray, Ali MacGraw and Ryan ONeal. And Sally Field and Brian Cranston did an online version during COVID.
