Sarah Ruhl and Les Waters, the acclaimed collaborators behind the recent hits Eurydice, In the Next Room (or The Vibrator Play)
and Three Sisters
, return to Berkeley Rep with another gorgeous tale of love and longing. Dear Elizabeth
follows the beautiful and bittersweet friendship between real-life poets Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell, both of whom were poets laureate of the United States in the late 1940s. Across oceans and continents, over the course of three decades, the two artists found a true marriage of minds that played out in their many vibrant, witty and passionate letters that now spring to life on stage. This West Coast premiere paints an intimate portrait of two extraordinary -- yet also quite ordinary -- lives, translated for the theater by two of the finest artists of our time.
