No Strings Theatre Company presented a single performance on Thursday, February 14, 2002, of A.R. Gurney's 1988 smash hit, "Love Letters" directed by guest director Frank Brandt and featuring Frank Ferguson and Marnie Wallace Leverett. Curtain time is 7:00 pm. This delightful two-character play chronicle the life-long relationship between a man and a woman solely through their correspondence. Frank Ferguson's daughter, Lorraine once met the author A.R. Gurney's daughter who advised: "Oh, pay no attention to my father. He is forever writing these plays about our neighbors!" -- accounting perhaps for the quite believable, often troubled, people portrayed in this and other Gurney plays.

"Love Letters" has been performed all over the world. A.R. Gurney has been quoted as saying that "Love Letters needs no theatre, no lengthy rehearsal, no special set, no memorization of lines, and no commitment from its two actors beyond the night of performance." The Wall Street Journal called "Love Letters" "the love affair of a lifetime" and "an exhilarating, funny, moving event," while Time Magazine called it "one of the best American plays of the decade," and the New York Times praised it as "wittily, irresistibly moving."
