“Love Letters” the play

idiomART is delighted to be hosting “Love Letters,” the first production of Cuenca’s new English-language theater, TNT The New Theater.

“Love Letters” is a simple, two-character play with a man and a woman reading their letters written across the decades starting from when they were children all the way to later in life. This frequently revived play is funny, engaging, and ultimately moving, and has been an audience favorite since its debut in 1988.

TNT The New Theater is an addition to Cuenca’s cultural landscape, a theater devoted to providing satisfying theatrical experiences for their audiences by focusing on excellence in play selection, acting, directing, and production design. TNT plans on presenting both contemporary and classic works, and looks forward to joint productions with the Cuenca theatrical community.

Director Paula Bailey leads the talented cast of The New Theater’s production of “Love Letters” by A.R. Gurney. Markku Sario portrays Andrew Makepeace Ladd 3rd, a reserved and eloquent character whose emotions are expressed through letters. Charlean Born brings to life Melissa Gardner, a vibrant and complex woman with a passionate spirit. Together, Sario and Born create a captivating portrayal of the lifelong correspondence between Andrew and Melissa. Under Bailey’s skilled direction, this poignant exploration of love, friendship, and the power of words comes to life on stage.
