DEAR ELIZABETH

A Play in Letters from Elizabeth Bishop to Robert Lowell and Back Again

Tickets available at tickets.vancouverfringe.com

BY SARAH RUHL

"Plays are closer to poems than they are to films or novels" - Max Posner

‚Äč

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.
