Sierra Stages and the Miners Foundry will present Dear Elizabeth on Wednesday, February 14, 2018. Dear Elizabeth, written by Sarah Ruhl and directed by Sands Hall, is the next installment of Theater By the Book, a series of informal play readings for the community.
A play in letters from Elizabeth Bishop to Robert Lowell and back again.
Told through the extensive correspondence between two of the 20th century’s most celebrated poets, Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell, “Dear Elizabeth” is a different kind of love story, of artists and friends. Playwright Sarah Ruhl weaves a lyrical, moving portrait of a 35-year friendship between two writers that transcends oceans, continents, and time.
Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the performance begins at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free with a $10 suggested donation. Advance tickets are available online, in person or by phone at the Miners Foundry, or at the door.
