A play in letters from Elizabeth Bishop to Robert Lowell and back again
“Haunting and tartly funny… DEAR ELIZABETH is a rare gift!” – The New York Times
“Deeply touching. Radiant. Heartbreaking. – The Hollywood Reporter
“It’s captivating! Ravishing!” – WNYC
DEAR ELIZABETH “…should be widely produced and…a staple in theaters around the nation.” – WQXR Operavore
From Sarah Ruhl, one of today’s most celebrated playwrights, comes a story of an unconventional friendship between two of the 20th century’s most notable poets: Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell. Drawn from a correspondence spanning thirty years, more than 400 letters, and distances as disparate as Maine to Key West and London to South America, Dear Elizabeth is a beautiful portrait of two lives intertwined.
