Dear Elizabeth
April 2-27, 2014
By Sarah Ruhl
A play in letters, from Elizabeth Bishop, to Robert Lowell, and back again
Directed by Lisa Rothe
Steinbright Stage


A lyrical, intimate, and moving portrait of two acclaimed American poets: Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell. Using her trademark intelligence and whimsy, Sarah Ruhl (The Clean House, Eurydice) breathes life into a relationship that defies category and delicately adapts Bishop and Lowell’s correspondence into “a play that is exquisite poetry in itself.” (Connecticut Arts Connection) Approximate run time is 1 hour, 40 minutes with one 15-minute.

This show is best enjoyed by ages 14 and up.
