84  Charing Cross Road

Portsmouth’s foremost amateur dramatics company, Humdrum, present 84 Charing Cross Road.

In 1949, Helene Hanff, a New York-based writer, contacts an antiquarian book-shop in London – Marks & Co. – for help acquiring some volumes she wants to add to her collection.
Manager Frank Doel replies to her letter. Thus begins one of literature’s great love-affairs.

For twenty years Hanff and the staff of the shop exchange letters; life-long friendships develop and Hanff promises, when times get easier, that she’ll cross the Atlantic to pay a visit…
Multi-award-winning HumDrum return to The Spring with this adaptation of Hannf’s own account of this astonishing twenty-year correspondence.
