Hollywood actress Elli Maclure, has made her way back to Tamworth and the Capitol Theatre for a one-show only performance of Love Letters by acclaimed author A.R. Gurney, on December 4 at 3pm.

This stirring play centres around a man and a woman who, in spite of distance and circumstance, write letters to each other from childhood to middle-age, through marriages and divorces, successes, failures and clashing careers.

The beauty of this elegant piece for the audience is that it is imbued with realism, naturalism, humour, affection, warmth, romance and tragedy. The beauty of it for the actors is that they are able to read these letters in the way that intimate love letters should be read, in the seclusion of their own private space. 

The passion of their shared love is palpable as the letters they pen reach across to each other from city to city and country to country. Characters, Melissa and Andy say virtually all there is to be said between lovers about life, love, highs, lows and personal destiny... but in this narrative the trivial remark often reveals something much deeper.

In Love Letters, Elli teams up with close friend and actor, David Foster, to deliver this moving masterpiece. David had an extensive career on stage and in television in the 60s and 70s with featured roles in Division 4, Matlock Police, Bellbird, Number 96 and A Country Practice.

The audience can join the actors after the show for a glass of wine, some cheese and a chat.  It’s all included in the ticket price.

This weekend, TRECC will be the place to explore our imaginations, our world, travel through time and shoot out into the universe, demonstrating the power of dance to inspire as Tamworth City Dance Academy’s class of 2016 performs their end of year dance spectacular on Saturday, December 3 from 2.30pm.

Tickets available online at, by phone on 6766 2028 or in person at Capitol Theatre Box Office or The Big Golden Guitar.
