FEATURES / CONTAINS

Unit Set/Multiple Settings

This wonderful show is a dramatization of business letters between a young struggling writer in New York and an antiquarian book store in London. In a sense, these are also love letters. They are about the love of good literature. The play takes place over a twenty year period, beginning in 1949 when Helene Hanff (played on Broadway by Ellen Burstyn) first writes Marks & Co. and ends in 1969 with the death of Frank Doel, the delightfully dusty supplier of so many old volumes to Helen who has shown her gratitude through the years by sending "care packages" to the staff of Marks & Co.

I have never seen this play on stage, or the film version with Anne Bancroft.  But, having read it makes me want to order a DVD from Netflix,  I am not a theater professional, just an interested amateur who enjoys watching good productions, whether live or filmed.

I would rate this script three stars out of five.  It is an interesting subject, but has little dramatic tension.  and so it fails to "grab" me.
