R. Gumey’s acclaimed play focusing on the life-long friendship and romance between Andrew Makepeace Ladd Ill , played by John J. Hohn) and Melissa Gardner, played by Robin Voiers. Both, born to wealth and position, are childhood friends whose lifelong correspondence begins with birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards. Gumey’s approach to the play is unique as he uses the epistolary form. Actors read the letters that are exchanged between them over the decades of their tumultuous relationship. Sometimes hilarious and often poignant, theirs is an affair in which love itself goes unacknowledged yet it is sustained by a thoroughly human undercurrent of unfulfilled yearning and fragile dependence.
