Love Letters, February 15 (The Norris Theatre)

Love Letters

In its first dinner event of the season, The Norris Theatre presents acclaimed playright A.R. Gurney's Love Letters on Saturday, February 15. A fine dinner will be served at 6pm, followed by the performance at 7:30pm.

Love Letters is an evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies, in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down. Not the usual romantic comedy, it is nevertheless a hauntingly beautiful play about love and two people who fall in love. The play stars Wally Hurst, the Director of The Norris Theatre, and his real-life wife, Maria Hurst.

This show has been rated PG-13 for adult language and situations. Love Letters is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, New York, New York.

Tickets for the dinner and show are $50 per couple. For more information and to make reservations, call the Louisburg College Box Office at (919) 497-3300.
