Directed by Paul Clarke and devised by performers Jess Hoffman and Richard Dufty, Love Letters is somewhere between a wedding reception and a radio dedication show. Before the performance, audience members are invited to send in music requests, dedications and declarations of love to those they care about past and present.
Love Letters is a joyful, open-hearted show that will help people feel connected at a time when many are isolated and missing their loved ones.
When: Wednesday, 27 May 2020, 7pm

Each year, disasters around the world kill nearly 100,000 and affect or displace 200 million people. Many of the places where these disasters occur are literally ‘missing’ from any map and first responders lack the information to make valuable decisions regarding relief efforts. Missing Maps is an open, collaborative project in which you can help to map areas where humanitarian organisations are trying to meet the needs of vulnerable people.
