About the Show Less...

The legendary Rula Lenska stars in Helene Hanff's play about a real life love affair. Read More >

This tender, bittersweet comedy is the extraordinary true story of a vivacious New York writer and a London bookseller. Through their letters and passion for books they share a remarkable transatlantic romance which spans more than 20 years. Their exchange of letters not only chronicles the the era from the 1940s to the 1960s, but also records a passionate love story.

Rula Lanska and William Gaunt star.
