The true story of two strangers with a shared love of literature

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd.

This enchanting play is a dramatisation of letters between a writer in New York and an antiquarian bookshop in London. Unfolding over 20 years, the story begins just after the Second World War when struggling writer Helene Hanff contacts Marks & Co, the eponymous bookstore at 84, Charing Cross Road. Frank Doel is the delightfully dusty supplier who seeks to fulfil Helene’s voracious literary appetite. Despite their transatlantic separation – and Hanff’s irascibility and sarcastic wit – the couple develop an unlikely close relationship and bond through their letters and a shared love of literature.
