Cover design by Marion Dorn It all began in 1949 with a letter enquiring about second-hand books, written by Helene Hanff in New York, and posted to a bookshop at 84 Charing Cross Road, London. As Helene's warm and witty letters gradually break down the reserve of bookseller Frank Doel, a friendship across the miles flourishes, lasting twenty years. No doubt it would have continued, but in 1969 the firm's secretary wrote to let Helene know of Frank's death. 'If you happen to pass by 84 Charing Cross Road', Helene later writes to a London-bound friend, 'kiss it for me. I owe it so much.

This wonderful show is a dramatization of business letters between a young struggling writer in New York and an antiquarian book store in London. In a sense, these are also love letters. They are about the love of good literature. The play takes place over a twenty year period, beginning in 1949 when Helene Hanff (played on Broadway by Ellen Burstyn) first writes Marks & Co. and ends in 1969 with the death of Frank Doel, the delightfully dusty supplier of so many old volumes to Helen who has shown her gratitude through the years by sending "care packages" to the staff of Marks & Co.

Det hele startet med en uskyldig forespørsel om en sjelden antikvarisk bok fra den frekke, overlegne New York-forfatterinnen Helene Hanff til et lite, men tradisjonsrikt antikvariat i London rett etter annen verdenskrig. Etter hvert som brev og bøker krysset Atlanteren, ble et strengt formelt forhold avløst av sjarmerende og festlige kjærlighetsbrev mellom en bokelskende amerikanerinne og den etter hvert ikke fullt så britiske Frank Doel i antikvariatet.
