The Library’s ninth season of Script-in-Hand performances, featuring the Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre, kicks off a series of Love Stories with the intimate, two-character play Love Letters.

A.R. Gurney’s poignant piece chronicles the 50-year relationship between a man and a woman — first as children, then as lovers, and finally as friends — through letters they exchanged during their lives and now read on stage. Premiering in 1988, the play was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1990.
