Love Letters

  • May 20, 2023 @ 3:00pm

When the young Andrew Makepeace Ladd III accepts an invitation to Melissa Gardner’s birthday party, Melissa writes him a thank you note… and a unique romantic friendship and delicately warm correspondence destined to last for almost half a century is born.

Love Letters is the tender, tragi-comic story of the shared nostalgia, missed opportunities, and deep closeness of two lifelong, complicated friends – two people physically separated yet brought together by candid communication and shared confidences, a romance blossoming across the miles and the years.

This event is a special benefit performance for the arts center featuring John Weltman, who funded the beautiful new outdoor performance area that bears his name. Mr. Weltman will be joined by Linda Monchik. These two veteran actors have performed in numerous productions on Cotuit’s main stage and Black Box theaters as well as many other local and regional theaters.
