… is the title of the Orpen Players’ spring production. The plot is based on real-life with a humorous script-reader in her New York apartment seeing an ad in the Saturday Review of Literature for a bookstore in London that does mail order. She begins a very special correspondence and friendship with Frank Doel, the bookseller who works at Marks & Co., 84 Charing Cross Road. The relationship lasted over 20 years without them ever actually meeting.
