Love Letters with Act Underground

The 2024 Salon Series launches with a special Valentine themed event. Join us for a reading of AR Gurney’s Love Letters directed and performed by members of the Act Underground Theatre Company. The play chronicles the relationship between Andy Makepeace Ladd III, a staid, dutiful lawyer and Melissa Gardner, a lively, unstable artist, through their lifelong correspondence, told entirely through their notes, invitations and letters exchanged from second grade through high school, college and adulthood. Tracing the story of their bittersweet relationship, Love Letters unfolds through what is written—and what is left unsaid—in their letters over their lives. Featuring Lisa Gonsalves and Gregg Triggs, the performance is directed by Kyoshin Lohr.

His upcoming book, Acting Out: How a Prison Theatre Workshop Broke Free, will be released in the fall of 2024.
