By popular demand a return season of A.R. Gurney's, Love Letters, will be presented by the National Trust of Australia (NSW), and the Bowral-based Creative & Co.
Love Letters was a finalist in the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, in 1990. The play brings to life the correspondence of two characters over fifty years, chronicling their hopes, dreams and disappointments.
The performances will be held in the Morning Room of the delightful Italianate style residence, Retford Park in Bowral. This impressive property was built by Mr Samuel Hordern in 1887 and was then later purchased by Mr James Fairfax AC in 1964. It was then that James Fairfax went about transforming the property into a gentleman’s residence. Many years later, on the 19th April 2016, James Fairfax, generously gifted the property to the National Trust of Australia (NSW) to be preserved for the enjoyment and benefit of future generations.
Cost: Adult $75, National Trust Member $65
