Sunday November 2, 2014 for one performance only!

Love Letters
by A. R. Gurney
Directed by Maureen Rogers
Produced by Maureen Rogers

One performance only, at 2:00 PM.

Location: Laurel Mill Playhouse

The piece is comprised of letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. As the actors read the letters aloud, what is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.

Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service. Tickets are $20 for general admission. Admission for students (12 and under), active duty military and seniors (65 and over) is $15. For reservations, please call 301-617-9906 and press 2.

Synopsis:
A young and successful television actor relocates to New York, where he rents a marvelous, gothic apartment. With his television career in limbo, the actor is offered the opportunity to play Hamlet onstage, but there’s one problem: He hates Hamlet. His dilemma deepens with the entrance of John Barrymore’s ghost, who arrives intoxicated and in full costume to the apartment that once was his. The contrast between the two actors, the towering, dissipated Barrymore whose Hamlet was the greatest of his time, and Andrew Rally, hot young television star, leads to a wildly funny duel over women, art, success, duty, television, and yes, the apartment.

Description: A group of photojournalists documented Marines in Afghanistan by taking photographs and videos using only an iPhone. This material, which enabled military families to communicate with their loved ones, began to tell an important story of ordinary people fundamentally changed by extraordinary circumstances.

The artful power of these images, a live musical score and spoken work text from Marines themselves come together in a riveting multimedia experience that reflect the uncertainties and separation that is a byproduct of war on families and communities.
