The joy and the pain, the wisdom and the humour preserved by the humble letter – expertly brought to life by some of the most acclaimed performers from around the world.

Letters Live has been moving audiences to both laughter and tears since 2013, in a live celebration of the enduring power of written correspondence. It is a performance phenomenon, making its International Festival debut following sell-out runs in London, and inspired by Shaun Usher’s best-selling Letters of Note, and by Simon Garfield’s To the Letter.

Each show features a range of performers, giving live readings of letters from across the centuries and all around the globe, all in front of a live audience. Who’ll be performing and what letter they’ll be bringing alive remain closely guarded secrets until the curtain goes up.

Previous Letters Live performers have included such luminaries as Benedict Cumberbatch, Olivia Colman, Jude Law, Juliet Stevenson, Russell Brand, Kylie Minogue, Gillian Anderson, Nick Cave, Thandie Newton, Riz Ahmed, Oscar Isaac and Jarvis Cocker. And the show has brought to the live stage letters by figures from David Bowie to Marge Simpson, Elvis Presley to Charlotte Brontë. Join us on the night to find out who will be taking to the stage.

Letters Live will amuse you and provoke you, and make you pause to imagine the lives embedded within each letter.
