"Love Letters"

December 9, 2009

Dec. 15-Jan. 17

Indiana Repertory Theatre

A.R. Gurney has written many plays, (including “The Dining Room,” “The Cocktail Hour” and “The Middle Ages”) but he truly became a friend to theaters across the country when he wrote the Pulitzer Prize-winner “Love Letters.”

Why? It’s easy to stage. The set is only a desk and two chairs, and the play requires just two actors, neither of whom has to memorize lines or be of a particular age. Since its premiere, “Love Letters” has been performed by a who’s who of actors, including such pairs as Elizabeth Taylor and James Earl Jones, Jason Robards and Colleen Dewhurst, Sigourney Weaver and Jeff Daniels, and Hal Linden and Barbara Eden (better known as Barney Miller and Jeannie).

In the IRT’s production, the letter-writers will be Patrick Clear and Priscilla Lindsay, who also appeared together in 2004’s “Plaza Suite.”
