Don't miss this sweet, funny, and emotional portrait about the powerful connection of love, directed by Lucien Douglas (UT's Associate Professor of Acting, Department of Theatre and Dance). Spunky Melissa (Kat Sparks) and hopelessly composed Andrew (Tony Sears) have been writing to each other since they were children of privilege in 1937. Now adults, each has discovered the same notes, cards, and letters they packed away long ago reveal more about their pain, victories, and life choices than originally thought. As they trace the story of their lives from the second grade through college, wartime, and into adulthood, they begin to read between the lines. Was true love ever meant to be?
