Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! If you’re still planning romantic festivities, block off time to bring your Valentine to see Love Letters by A.R. Gurney, performed by Andrew Botsford and Jane Baldwin at The Southampton Inn. The show, directed by Tom Edmonds, will run on Saturday, February 11th at 2 p.m. and has no admission charge!
The two-character play centers on a man and a woman who have corresponded through letters for fifty years. They begin writing to each other during childhood and progress through their romantic attachment, marriage to other individuals, and contrasting paths through life. The letters reveal their hopes, disappointments, and continual spiritual bond. It’s a true love story.
“Rosemary Cline and Andrew Botsford are fantastic in A.R.Gurney’s Love Letters,” remarked Edmonds. “They performed this play at the Southampton Historical Museum several years ago and, at the end, there were very few dry eyes. They are a favorite team at the Hamptons Theater in Quogue where they recently performed Gurney’s Black Tie.“
Stick around after Love Letters for a reception co-sponsored by the Southampton Inn, Southampton Historical Museum, and Rogers Memorial Library. Seating is limited, so RSVP by Thursday, February 9th at 4 p.m. by calling the Southampton Inn at 631-283-6500.
The Southampton Inn is located at 91 Hill Street in Southampton. For more information, call the Southampton Historical Museum at 631-283-2494 or visit www.southamptonhistoricalmuseum.org.
