Together but continents apart, Pulitzer Prize-winning poets Robert Lowell and Elizabeth Bishop exchanged more than 400 letters from 1947 to 1977, exploring poetry, romance, illness, grief, and the profound affection they had for one another.

From Sarah Ruhl comes a touching reflection on friendship, art, and what it means to love across distances. 

“[Dear Elizabeth] delicately explores, through nothing more than the letters ... the solitude of the artist, the exactitude of the writer’s craft, the balance between confession and privacy and, in the end, why poetry matters.” —Variety 

The performance on September 7 is half-price!
