A lifelong friendship

JAVEA PLAYERS’ next production is A R Gurney’s Love Letters.
It is a tender, tragi-comic, and nuanced examination of the shared nostalgia, missed opportunities, and deep closeness of two life-long, complicated friends.
When Melissa Gardner writes a thank-you note and asks why Andrew Makepeace Ladd III gave her The Lost Princess of Oz for her birthday, a romantic friendship and correspondence destined to last almost half a century is born.
Both from affluent, East Coast families, the friends communicate with each other through angst-ridden boarding school experiences, European adventures, and career ups and downs.
Despite the painful differences, Melissa and Andrew remain each other’s most trusted confidante, and are “true lovers” on paper, if not in real life.
The show runs from September 22-24 and September 29-October in the Studio Theatre, with 50 per cent capacity audiences to allow adequate social distancing. For tickets €11.50 visit the  www.javeaplayers.com website.
