Told through the extensive and imaginative correspondence between two of the 20th century’s most important and celebrated American poets — Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell — Dear Elizabeth is a different kind of love story, of artists and friends. Bishop and Lowell's thirty-five-year friendship served to buoy each other up in life and art, each being profoundly impacted by the other. Celebrated playwright Sarah Ruhl weaves a lyrical, moving portrait of a friendship between two writers that transcends oceans, continents, and time.
