“It is a marvelous piece of theatre that blowtorches away Britishness and forces you to feel” Time Out
Seven years aftrer its first performance, Love Letters Straight From Your Heart feels as fresh as it did in 2006, and continues to move audience on tour.
Let's raise our glasses to long lost loves and current lovers, to mums, to dads, and to absent friends.
Uninvited Guests stage an event that is somewhere between a wedding reception, a wake and a radio dedication show. We speak of our own and other’s loves – deep, passionate, ambivalent and unrequited – and dedicate songs to them.
If you want to join us on this happy occasion, send a dedication to someone you love to email@example.com
Your letters of love may become part of the show, romantic gestures or signs of friendship, shared publicly between us. Be our witnesses and we’ll be yours.
Developed through Scratch at Battersea Arts Centre. An Arnolfini We Live Here commission. Also commissioned by Leeds Met Studio Theatre. Originally funded by Arts Council England.

"You can't help but fall in love with it." Lyn Gardner, The Guardian *****
"Initially, you feel voyeuristic as loves and heartbreaks are revealed; after a while you simply feel part of a huge community as lives, hopes, dreams and sadnesses are offered up in a way that is blisteringly honest and unvarnished, but also entirely safe because of the anonymity." The Guardian *****
