When Irene Spencer meets Vera Small at her daughter Lesley's wedding reception they embark upon a correspondence that is quite unlike any other in the history of letter-writing.
Both Irene and Vera are happily widowed and endowed with errant offspring. They live in a world of church fetes and amateur dramatics, but love nothing more than dipping their pens in the vitriol pot - while remaining the firmest of pen-pals.

I passed a blissful hour during a recent coach journey listening to these two ladies ingratiate themselves with each other and then get prickly and wonderfully catty, returning full circle to keeping their friendship alive. What a great listen.
excellence love every minute of The ladies of Letters cannot get enough of them kerp them coming
"Very entertaining brilliantly performed"
I really enjoyed this short play. Funny and brilliantly performed. Another Radio four classic. Will be downloading more of these over time.
This is hilarious!! I loved the letters these women wrote to each other and the misunderstandings that happen, very apt in this email driven age!
Great talent and the very best storyline of the Ladies of Letters series
