This wonderful play is a dramatisation of letters between Helene Hanff, a struggling writer in New York and Frank Doel of Marks & Co. 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 20-year period from 1949 to 1969, and charts historical events including the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II and the rise of The Beatles through the correspondence between Helene and Frank, the delightfully dusty supplier of so many old volumes to Helene, who shows her gratitude through the years by sending “care packages” to the staff of Marks & Co.
