Dear Elizabeth: a play in letters from Elizabeth Bishop to Robert Lowell and back again

By Sarah Ruhl

Dear Elizabeth vividly brings to life thirty years of correspondence, romantic and otherwise, between the famed poets Robert Lowell and Elizabeth Bishop. Their epistolary journey covers her alcoholism, his mental illness and a relationship that defied conventional notions of love.

Featuring Julian Sands and JoBeth Williams.

Riveting. A moving, funny, and highly theatrical experience. -Joe Meyers, Connecticut Post
