Bunbury Theatre is back with A.R. Gurney’s two-person piece that celebrates the lost art of letter writing, and if it’s anything like those movies (fine, chick flicks) featuring romantic correspondence, the audience may celebrate the art of crying. Actors Jane Welch and Matt Orme play the two letter writers who are not lovers, exactly — they were close friends who grew up together but stayed in touch over the years, and the show consists of them reading their letters aloud to one another. Not only is this freakin’ adorable and perfect for a Valentine’s Day date, the show promises compelling work in character study, since the actors only have the text of the letters to convey a full, lifelong relationship. —Jane Mattingly
