Performed by Casey Biggs and Cynthia Anthony, the play follows the relationship between a stuffy lawyer and a free-spirited woman. Both characters were born to wealth and position and are childhood friends whose lifelong correspondence begins with birthday party notes and summer camp postcards. Romantically attached, they continue to exchange letters through boarding school and college, their marriages, careers, a divorce, and even an affair. Through their correspondence they discuss their hopes and ambitions, as well as the dreams and disappointments that have passed between them throughout their separated lives.
