Love will be in the air in Bridgehampton May 8 and 9 when Pia Lindström and Terrance Fiore present A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters.

This disarmingly funny and unforgettably emotional portrait about the powerful connection of love will be directed by three-time Tony award winner Tony Walton.

Starring Lindström, the former CBS correspondent, NBC news anchor and Emmy recipient, and local favorite Fiore, Love Letters shares the story of two friends, rebellious Melissa Gardner and straight-arrow Andrew Makepeace Ladd III, who have exchanged notes, cards and letters with each other for more than 50 years. From second grade, through summer vacations, to college, and well into adulthood, they have spent a lifetime discussing their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, and victories and defeats. But long after the letters are done, the real question remains: Have they made the right choices or is the love of their life only a letter away?

Gurney, is an award-winning author of more than 40 plays that include The Cocktail Hour, Scenes from American Life, Screen Play, The Snow Ball, The Dining Room, Sweet Sue, Sylvia, The Wayside Motor Inn and What I Did Last Summer.

Sponsored by The Corcoran Group, tickets are priced at $25 and include a wine and cheese post party with the stars. Funds raised from the event will benefit East End Hospice, Dominican Sisters and Maureen’s Haven. Tickets can be purchased each night by cash or credit card at the door of St. Ann’s Episcopal Church, Main Street, Bridgehampton.

The St. Ann’s Outreach Program has distributed over $1 million to local charities since its inception 50 years ago. Both performances have 7 p.m. start times.
