Love Letters: Surely more exciting than those I received
Mates Theatre Genesis, a theatrical group based in Brisbane's Redlands, presents Love Letters for the annual Australia Day play to be performed at the Redland Museum.
This annual event has grown in both stature and popularity, appealing to a wide audience, with seven shows in three weeks from January 26 to February 10, in 2018. As well as being a major fundraiser for the Museum, the Australia Day plays tend to represent all that is good in our local community: an appreciation of the environment by way of dining under the stars surrounded by majestic Eucalypts, Museum volunteers working together to achieve goals, and a wonderful sense of bonhomie amongst all in attendance. Is it any wonder that this will be our fifth year in a row in the audience?
Love Letters is a play by A. R. Gurney that was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play centers on two characters, Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III, who sit side by side at tables and read the notes, letters and cards – in which over nearly 50 years, they discuss their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, victories and defeats – that have passed between them throughout their separated lives.
