Looking for a must-see theatre show?

Immerse yourself in the tender, tragi-comic story of the shared nostalgia, missed opportunities, and deep closeness of two lifelong, complicated friends with Love Letters at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket.

Reopening once London's lockdown restrictions are lifted, it's a must-see show with tickets from as little at £22 per person.

A play that could have been written for the Covid era, Love Letters is about two people physically separated yet brought together by candid communication and shared confidences, a romance blossoming across the miles and the years.

When the young Andrew Makepeace Ladd III accepts an invitation to Melissa Gardner’s birthday party, Melissa writes him a thank you note… and a unique romantic friendship and delicately warm correspondence destined to last for almost half a century is born.

Love Letters first opened in New York in 1989 and was a finalist in the 1990 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Gaining huge popularity, it has since played in theatres across the globe, attracting both real-life and on-screen couples to star as the protagonists. The last Broadway production in 2014 featured Mia Farrow and Brian Dennehy.

You might remember the last time you saw Martin Shaw and Jenny Seagrove together, in the finale of hugely popular Judge John Deed, with their characters Judge John Deed and barrister Jo Mills left in an empty wedding chapel. Now the iconic couple, Shaw and Seagrove, are together again live on stage in a heartwarming love story.
