Love Letters

Southern Legal Counsel is presenting “Love Letters,” by A.R. Gurney at the Hippodrome Theatre on Monday, October 24, 2016, at 7:00 p.m. “Love Letters” is a staged reading featuring two of Gainesville’s beloved actors, Nell Page and Kevin Rainsberger. “Love Letters” was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It centers on two characters who discuss their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, victories and defeats, that have passed between them throughout their separated lives. The fundraising event will include a pre-show reception and Silent Auction beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the Hippodrome Basement. The “Love Letters” performance will begin on Mainstage at 6:30pm following the reception.
