Hollywood legends Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal star in the upcoming UK tour of Love Letters, celebrated playwright A.R. Gurney’s enduring romance about first loves and second chances. Following a critically-acclaimed Broadway run and sell-out US Tour, this stunning production comes to Edinburgh for 8 performances only.

Andrew Makepeace Ladd III (O’Neal) wrote his first letter to Melissa Gardner (MacGraw) to tell her she looked like a lost princess; they were both seven years old. For the next fifty years, through personal triumphs and despair, through wars and marriages and children and careers, they poured out their heartfelt secrets to each other. They defied a fate that  schemed to keep them apart, and lived for the one most  meaningful thing, their undying love for each other.
