Love Letters at Home

21 Jul 2021
Uninvited Guests

A performance created from your song dedications and declarations of love, past and present, join us online via Zoom for Love Letters at Home as we raise our glasses to long lost loves and current lovers, to mums and dads, and to absent friends.

Love Letters at Home is an intimate participatory piece of theatre in which the audience and performers offer dedications and declarations of love, past and present. It is collaboratively authored with its audience, who temporarily becomes a community of close friends across the performance.

Before the show, people who book tickets are invited to send in music requests or to write dedications to those they love or care about, and these are worked into the event each night. We try with care, to only speak with words written by those in the audience – each performance is unique to that group of people, their memories, their current and past loves or friendships, their emotions, laid bare for everyone to witness, acknowledge and support.

Love Letters at Home shifts between theatre and a real social event; dedications are spoken, toasts are made, speeches are given, songs are sung, and dances are danced, on behalf of the audience and with them.


Uninvited Guests are Paul Clarke, Richard Dufty, and Jessica Hoffmann. Formed in Bristol in 1998, the company’s work has toured nationally and internationally. They create entertaining and provocative performances that combines high-tech with low tech, the visceral with the virtual. Uninvited Guests work in various contexts, focussing mainly on theatre but also producing installation and audio walks. Their recent work has blurred the line between theatre and social festivities, with audiences joining us in events that are celebratory and critical of these times.
