The Merlin Players Professional Theatre performs "Love Letters" beginning this weekend at the Paradise Center for the Arts in Faribault.

Julianna Skluzacek will stop by the KDHL Studio to give us more details about this play that will make you laugh and probably cry a little.

Julianna plays Melissa and Jerry Fox is Andrew.

The description of the story line states on the Merlin Players website:

"Before emails and texts, before emoticons and emojis and Facebook and Instagram, people communicated their fondest hopes, their casual observations and their lame jokes on paper, with pen or pencil or perhaps a typewriter, and then stuffed the results into quaint things called mailboxes.

"Love Letters"  was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and centers on a lifelong friendship of Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and their 40 years of letters through which they share their joys and heartbreaks.
