"Love Letters" starring Roger Fristoe and Fran Levy, traces the enduring friendship of Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III, over several decades. The script examines the characters' hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, victories and defeats -- and, above all, their intense and enduring relationship with each other. The play, which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, is unusual in that its dialogue is taken from the correspondence -- notes, letters and cards -- that have passed between Melissa and Andy through the years.
