84 Charing Cross Road
by Helene Hanff
adapted by James Roose-Evans
directed by Gilly Rosenthol
In 1949, a struggling young New York playwright sent a letter inquiring about second-hand books to an antiquarian book store in London. So began a 20-year friendship between Helene Hanff and the booksellers at 84 Charing Cross Road. Taken from their actual letters, this story will amuse you, charm you, and send you running to your nearest library.
