HATE MAIL AT THE PAPERMILL THEATER, LINCOLN
Thurs. Jan. 31 7:30 PM and Sunday Feb. 3 2 PM, Papermill Theater, 10 Papermill Drive, Lincoln, NH. The story of Preston, a spoiled rich kid who meets his match in Dahlia, an angst-filled artist. Their worlds collide when Preston sends a complaint letter that gets Dahlia fired from her job, and then there’s no turning back. The play stays with their increasingly crazed correspondence as they move from hate to love, and then right back again. For more information: http://www.papermilltheatre.org

LOVE LETTERS AT THE PAPERMILL THEATER, LINCOLN
Fri. Feb. 1 7:30 PM and Saturday Feb. 2 7:30 PM, Papermill Theater, 10 Papermill Drive, Lincoln, NH. The handwritten note leaves an indelible mark forever, not only on the ink-stained paper, but also in the heart of its reader. American playwright A.R. Gurney knew this when he created his Pulitzer Prize nominated play Love Letters. Love Letters, considered one of Gurney´s best and a classic of the American stage, tells the story of two people who grew up in the 1930s and whose lives become intimately entwined by the prolificacy of their pens.
