This is the heartwarming and moving true story based on the remarkable Trans-Atlantic correspondence between New York screenwriter Helene Hanff and the staff at London antiquarian bookshop Marks & Co.
But this is no mere recital of letters as the relationships grow beyond the initial book orders to take in witty literary repartee, shared personal lives and a certain kind of love affair.
On a stage divided between Miss Hanff’s cluttered Manhattan apartment and the inviting mustiness of the Marks & Co bookshop, the audience will watch common passions and mutual care develop over twenty years through post war austerity to “Swinging London” into bonds that bridge the Atlantic.
