    Martin Shaw stars in timely and touching play

    Martin Shaw and Jenny Seagrove return to the West End for a revival of Love Letters at Theatre Royal Haymarket. The production marks the re-opening of the theatre for a series of COVID secure performances touching on the nuances of a decades-long friendship.

    Andrew Makepeace III and Melissa Gardner first encounter each other as children but stay in touch for over 50 years. From postcards and birthday cards to letters written during the war, the pair’s written correspondence reveals missed opportunities and the nostalgia of a lifelong, complicated connection.

    Screen and stage veterans Martin Shaw (Twelve Angry Men) and Jenny Seagrove star in this two-hander play, reuniting after previously appearing together in BBC drama Judge John Deed.

    A. R. Gurney’s Pulitzer Prize-nominated play was first performed in London at Wyndham’s Theatre. This revival of Love Letters at Theatre Royal Haymarket is directed by Roy Marsden.

    Charting the dreams, disappointments and connection of two people physically apart, Love Letters is a bittersweet and universally relatable play. It opens in London at Theatre Royal Haymarket on 19 May 2021.

    Performance dates: 01 Jun 2021 - 13 Jun 2021

    Running time: 2 hours (including interval)

    Excellent two-hander beautifully delivered by the actors. Poignant, but with laughs too. You really get drawn into the world created by the letter writers. Very good American accents too.

    A well performed and endearing play, which I felt was a little jarring with the fact that both actors mostly seemed to be reading the script off the tables - as if they didn't know if off by heart. Not a must-see, but entertaining enough for a night out at the theatre.

    It was lovely to be back in the West End again. Jenny Seagrove & Martin Shaw were great as a couple from young age to old age reading love letters to one another. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad it was a well written piece and I'm delighted that it was on in the West End

    Just good to step inside theatre to see a serious piece of theatre. Actors read from scripts. Very wordy, a few trip ups over the words but both are class actors.
