Fair City Stars bring Love Letters to Newbridge

Love-LettersThe Mill Theatre in association with City Theate Dublin presents "Love Letters" by A.R. Gurney, Starring Bryan Murray & Una Crawford O’Brien (Bob & Renee, Fair City).
Riverbank Arts Centre,
Saturday 27th February, 8pm
Tickets €15/ €12
Starring Bryan Murray & Una Crawford O’Brien, Fair City’s Bob & Renee, A.R. Gurney's Love Letters chronicles the relationship between Andy and Melissa solely through their correspondence.

The play tells the story of Andrew Makepeace Ladd and Melissa Gardner, whose poignantly funny friendship and ill-fated romance takes them from second grade through adolescence, maturity, and into middle age.

Their words are both hysterical and moving and as the play unfolds the audience comes to know both of them intimately – from their strict WASP upbringing, through later life political aspirations, love affairs, military service and artistic ambitions.

A smash hit both off and on Broadway, Love Letters captures Andy and Melissa with a precision of detail and depth of feeling only Gurney can command.
Love Letters is funny, compelling, sad, poignant, and will prove to be an exhilarating and touching night of theatre that will stay in the memory long after the performance ends.
