R. Gurney’s critically acclaimed play, Love Letters. Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in Drama, Love Letters centers on two characters, Melissa Gardner (Weaver) and Andrew Makepiece Ladd III (Daniels) as they read the hilarious and poignant letters that have passed between them throughout their lives. In them, the characters reveal their hidden dreams, hopes, victories and defeats. Only when the last are read do they realize they were love letters all along.
