AMHERST, NH – Renowned television actors Dan Lauria and Wendie Malick are headlining two performances of A.R. Gurney’s “Love Letters” at Souhegan High School in Amherst.

Malick, a Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated actress, has had a distinguished career, including recurring roles on NBC’s “Just Shoot Me” and TV Land’s “Hot in Cleveland.

Lauria, best known as Kevin Arnold’s father on ABC’s “The Wonder Years,” has appeared in over 70 television shows, including recent cameos on “NCIS,” “The Night Shift,” and “Elementary.”

The two actors, who also both recently appeared on NBC’s “This is Us,” have performed Gurney’s play numerous times for charity.

The play, which was a 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama finalist, tells the story of two childhood friends and a lifelong correspondence that creates a relationship neither one of them could have imagined.

All proceeds from the performances benefit the Front Door Agency, a non-profit organization that serves people at risk of homelessness in the Greater Nashua area, with an emphasis on needy single mothers.

The show will be held on June 2 at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at 603-886-2866 or online at www.tinyurl.com/loveletters18
