A production of "Love Letters" opens this weekend, presented by Elgin Theatre Company. The show by A.R. Gurney will be performed at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays from now through June 30.
The play is comprised of letters exchanged over a lifetime between two well-to-do people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. As the actors read the letters aloud, an evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies is created, in which implied meaning is as revealing as what is actually written down.
The performances are presented in the Kimball Street Theater at the northeast corner of Kimball Street and Dundee Avenue in downtown Elgin. Founded more than 60 years ago, the theater serves the northwestern suburbs.
Tickets cost $15 for adults and $12 for seniors and youth. For ticket reservations or more information, call Elgin Theatre Company at 847-741-0532 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit www.elgin-theatre.org.
