A journey through love with a stamp

Kirsty Veron and Peter Whalley-Thompson will be playing two estranged lovers taking steps through life in the form of letters in the upcoming Atherton Performing Arts production “Love Letters”

ATHERTON Performing Arts is set to take locals on a trip of love without moving from their seats as they present the story ‘Love Letters’. 

The performance follows two childhood friends, Melissa Gardner played by Kirsty Veron and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III played by Peter Whalley-Thompson. 

Both born to wealth and power the two childhood friends start their lives and their stories in the form of letters sent to one another. 

This quickly blooms into a romance as the two follow very different paths in life, but they continue to write despite the distance in their lives and each other. 

“This play is like a journey through two people’s lives as they write to each other,” Mr Whalley-Thompson explained. 

“The letters that they exchange in the early days are children’s letters and the relationship and the things they write to each other about changes. 

“Your taken through their evolution into adults and the respected messes they make of their lives.” 

This will be the first fullfledged production back on stage for Atherton Performing Arts and will take place over the last two weekends of May 2021.
