in HAVENCREST CASTLE
Love Letters is a unique and imaginative theatre piece comprised of letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. As the actors read the letters aloud, what is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.
Lora Adams - a professional actress and EMMY nominated documentary filmmaker who works for WQPT - PBS. She is delighted to bring Love Letters by A.R. Gurney to Havencrest Castle. Adams is the co-founder and artistic director of The Black Box Theatre in Moline, IL and recently played Marie Antionette in The Revolutionists and directed Veronica's Room. This summer she will be in Calendar Girls at the Clinton Showboat.
James Driscoll - is a frequent actor at The Black Box Theatre. His favorite roles include George in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Col Jessep in A Few Good Men and Thomas in Murder in Green Meadows. James Driscoll has been involved in Community Theater in the Quad Cities for over 20 years. He retired from federal government service in 2020.
