Rankin reprises ‘Love Letters’
Bath — Matinicus actress Suzanne Rankin and Thom Watson will reprise the roles in AR Gurney’s “Love Letters” in the annual Valentine’s Day production Friday, Feb. 14, at 7:30 p.m. at the Cosmopolitan Club located at 894 Washington St.
Rankin and Watson bring Melissa and Andy to life as they chronicle two people who form a bond early in their lives that survives their being directed along different paths and into divergent careers and separate love lives. They grow up exchanging the letters that form the story's script and, through those letters, their very different lives come back together in later years when they can no longer hide or deny their love for one another.
The audience plays a silent witness to the development of these characters as they meet the challenges of modern life while never completely losing the bond they formed as children. The play stands entirely on its own, with very little assistance from the actors at all.
Tickets for the show, produced by the Chocolate Church Arts Center, are $15, $25 per couple, available online at chocolatechurcharts.org and by calling the Chocolate Church box office at 442-8455.
