LOVE LETTERS
lovelettersby Porchlight Theater Company
Friday April 5th and Saturday April 6th, 8pm-10pm
General Tickets: $15-$25 in advance; $20-$30 at the door. Students, Teachers, and Seniors: $15 in advance all performances.

Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner, both born to wealth and position, are childhood friends whose lifelong correspondence begins with birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards. Romantically attached, they continue to exchange letters through boarding school and their college years, through war and peace… physically apart, perhaps, but spiritually as close as only true lovers can be.

For tickets call 415-251-1027 or email info@porchlight.net. For more info see Visit Porchlight website.
