What is Love Letters the play by A. R. Gurney about?
Love Letters, in a nutshell, is about the budding romance between two pen pals separated physically by miles, but brought closer together over the years through candid correspondence and shared confessions.
When the young Andrew Makepeace Ladd III accepts a birthday party invitation from Melissa Gardner, Melissa writes him a thank you note… and, thus, begins a one-of-a-kind romantic friendship and tender-loving communication destined to last for nearly 50 years.

Having first opened in New York City in 1989, Love Letters is perhaps widely known for becoming a finalist for the 1990 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play quickly gained overwhelming popularity and has since been staged in entertainment venues all over the world. The piece has also had a tradition of casting both real-life couples and on-screen couples with good chemistry to play the protagonists.
