Love Letters TAPAC

Exploring love, life and India through the letters of two lovebirds, the Pulitzer Prize nominated Love Letters was originally written in English by A R Gurney and is presented in Hindi by Indian Art Theatre, a leading platform for Indian performing arts...

Starring Monica Nangia and Kapil N Asrani, this is a story that will melt your heart as it talks about love, life, and about the India many of us have loved.

Before the smartphone changed everything, romance was about words, not emojis; love was about rhymes, not just good times, and pictures were awesome because they weren’t perfect.

If you grew up in India of the 1980s and 1990s, this love story will tug at your heart.  Two lovers meet and grow up together in the city of Bombay, before it was Mumbai. Their souls lost, Bombay keeps them together as they grapple to find each other through letters.

They exist for each other in letters, and write furiously, trying to rise above the constant buzz that surrounds a developing, collapsing, accident prone, propped up, but still disarmingly beautiful country, India. And they find solace in each other. They fall apart, and then come back again and again, because that's where they are truly alive. In their letters.

We get to experience love, hate, tears, passion, fire, riots, famines, secedist movements, political highs and romantic lows, everything that India lived through, through the words of our two lovebirds.

It’s your story, in words you understand. And it will probably remind you of someone you loved….once.
