For thirty years Margaret and Leonardo have sat each day at adjoining desks, writing postcards to famous people, without ever getting any answers

Having run out of live personages to write to they decide to address their cards to the famous dead - but, suddenly, much to their consternation, a reply does arrive

Its effect is shattering, and brings on a poignant revelation of the unspoken feelings which have, through all the years, lay dormant beneath the calm surface of their very correct relationship

Perceptive, funny, warm-hearted, this engaging short play holds the unique distinction of having been successfully presented on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and Off-Off-Broadway

" touching and entertaining" ~ NY Newsday
