A.R. Gurney’s play, Love Letters, will be presented at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 6, at Silverton High School theater as a benefit for the Silverton Senior Center.
Carol Adams Fritsche portrays Melissa Gardner, a flighty, lively artist, and Michael Swanson plays lawyer William Makepeace Ladd III. Their relationship unfolds from what is said – as well as what is unsaid – as the couple reads a correspondence that began in second grade and continues through adolescence, maturity, and into middle age. Both actors recently appeared in the Salem Repertory Theatre production of To Kill a Mockingbird. Fritsche is a Silverton resident.
Tickets, $12 for adults and $10 for senior citizens, can be purchased at the door or at Black Lily, Citizens Bank, Silverton Realty, Silverton Chamber of Commerce and Silverton Senior Center. This play is not appropriate for children. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
