to go
that is the question
the last of the love letters

a plea

“This is one of those plays where time, place, and most other orienting details are dangling question marks. Some get answers. Most do not…It’s almost as if you can see the writing process in the fabric of the piece: Anyanwu in her own personal quarantine dystopia, spewing her feelings of loss and loneliness while her artistic medium of choice slips from the world with no promise of return.” “If you think [THE LAST OF THE LOVE LETTERS] is a straightforward romance, think again…LOVE LETTERS may demonstrate how our most powerful needs ultimately become our most inescapable prisons.” —The New York Times. “…a devastating production by anyone’s measure…extremely moving…Anyanwu’s play is a meditation on love that strongly implies love inevitably disintegrates into loneliness. Or worse.” —
