About Love Letters

Vijay Times, Monday, October 25, 2004


DreamScope Theatre by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service Inc, New York, will bring to the city, Love Letters a play which traces the lifelong correspondence of the staid, dutiful Lawyer Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and the lively, and unstable artist Melissa Gardner; the story of their bittersweet relationship gradually unfolds, from what is written and what is left unsaid, in their letters.

Love Letters captures Andy and Melissa with a precision of detail and depth. Evoking the personal, the intimate and the fragile gossamer of the relationships between a staid lawyer and a spirited artist (painter), as they grow up and grow on in their interactions with each other, is predicted on the spatial and elemental arrangement of the play.

DreamScope Theatres’ production of Love Letters is a reshaping of theatre as an installation art and thus emphasizing the extra-per formative facets of a play.

Costumes are arranged by Shwetha Williams while stage arrangements are made by Manish Goyal.
