RICHARDSON – “Love Letters,” the play by A.R. Gurney that’s been running on and off Broadway for more than thirty years is making its way to the Repertory Company Theatre in Richardson Feb. 6-Feb. 14.
The socially distanced new production is about two friends who have lived separate lives only to be connected through words written on notes, cards, and letters. The friends read these letters sharing their hopes, ambitions, dreams, and disappointments while celebrating the victories and defeats in their lives.
“You will laugh at the things you have in common with these two characters so, I think that, you will see your own relationships played out on stage,” said actress Megan Demsky.
RCT follows strict CDC guidelines and have policies in place to help keep everyone safe during each performance. Audience members are seated separately to allow for social distancing, and everyone is encouraged to wear masks.
“I think this show, because of the way it’s written and staged is perfect for theater at this time because it’s only two people, we’re not singing and dancing. We’re telling this tory apart, we’re not together. I think it works really well and people will see it’s a nice, safe place to come to see a show and feel comfortable with the message being conveyed,” said actor Eddy Herring.
RCT is one of many organizations funded in part by the city through the Cultural Arts Commission. Visit www.artsinrichardson.com for more information.
