Fayetteville based company The Smokehouse Players are back after a two-year pandemic-related intermission, and they’ll perform a new show next week.

The small company that got started a few years ago performing shows in the old Ozark Mountain Smokehouse building at 1725 Smoke House Trail will return with a performance of A.R. Gurney’s Pulitzer-nominated play, Love Letters April 709 at the Smokehouse.

From the description of the show:

“Love Letters,” is a tender tragi-comedy that traces the 50-year love affair between two unlikely soulmates who are forever bound to each other through the letters they share from youth to maturity.

The news show will be directed by Warren Rosenaur, and stars locals Tim Gilster and Terry Vaughan.

Tickets to the show are free, though donations will be accepted. All donations received at the Thursday performance will benefit Magdalene Serenity House, a local organization that helps to “rebuild the lives of women who have experienced trauma, addiction, and incarceration,” and donations from the April 7 performance will be matched by 6 donors, officials told us.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.

Beer, wine, lemonade, and cookies will be available.
