"Plays are closer to poems than they are to films or novels" - Max Posner
From 1947 to 1977, pulitzer prize-winning poets, Robert Lowell and Elizabeth Bishop exchanged more than four hundred letters.
Describing the writing of their poems, their travel and daily illnesses, the pyrotechnics of their romantic relationships, and the profound affection they had for each other, these missives are the most intimate record available of both poets and one of the greatest correspondences in American literature. From award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl comes a touching reflection on friendship, art, and what it means to love across distances.

“Fighting words . . .
“Lainie and Mariam have it out for each other, so it’s no surprise when they finally come to violent blows in the middle of their high school’s drama room. That’s when Caddell Morris, an ex-professional actor and newly minted student teacher, steps in. By teaching the girls the art of stage combat, he hopes to help them understand more about the roots and costs of violence. But when he convinces the drama teacher to let them play Mercutio and Tybalt in their school production of Romeo and Juliet, swords, words, and egos battle and clash. Can they find a way to work together?
