The Hindu MetroPlus is organising a theater festival from 10th to 13th October, at the Ravindra Bharathi auditorium. Four reputed English plays from various parts of the country will be witnessed during the 4-day festival. Today, the first day, Love Letters, will be staged by Rage Theatre from Mumbai. The play is directed by Rahul Da Cunha and written by A R Gurney.

A R Gurney's internationally acclaimed stage hit is a heartwarming, poignant play about two people, Andy Ladd III and Melissa Gardner, who write letters to each other over a period of 50 years. Andy is a serious, down-to-earth attorney. Melissa is a lively, free-spirited artist. But these two opposites have a definite attraction. They are childhood friends who share a lifetime of experiences through a voluminous series of letters and notes written from the ages of 6 to 60.

Poignant, romantic and frequently funny, their correspondence follows a bittersweet path of boarding schools, marriage, children, divorce and missed opportunities. It's the life journey of two soulmates - enacted through words both written and unsaid - who share the greatest gift of all: the gift of love. Rajit Kapoor and Shernaz Patel portray the characters of Andy and Melissa.

The play opened in 1993 and has completed over 250 performances since then. It is perhaps the longest running English play in India.

Launched in Chennai in 2005, The MetroPlus Theatre Festival has become a big success, growing in ambition and in maturity with every passing year. This August, the Chennai event comprised 12 plays – 4 of them from abroad. The highly encouraging response in Chennai has led to the festival debuting in Hyderabad, another city with a large discerning and appreciative audience for the arts.

The Hyderabad event is made up of four plays – all of which are being staged at the Ravindra Bharati - Love Letters by Rage (Mumbai), Five Point Someone by The Madras Players (Chennai), Butter And Mashed Banana by Harami Theatre (Bangalore) and Amadeus by Boardwalkers (Chennai).

The entry is by tickets of Rs. 300, Rs. 200 and Rs. 100 per head, and season passes are available for Rs. 900 and Rs. 600 per head. Please contact The Hindu at 2341-7777 for further details.
