Dear Elizabeth, presented by New Surry Theatre
Dear Elizabeth is a moving and innovative play based on the thirty-year correspondence between poets Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell. While reading the 459 letters published in Words in Air: The Complete Correspondence Between Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell, playwright Sarah Ruhl writes, I could not put the letters down. I hungered to hear them read aloud. As she selected and arranged the writers own words with no invented dialogue, we now can see and hear for ourselves the emergence of this extraordinary friendship between two great American poets, as their letters span the personal, political, and literary epochs of their time. Cindy Robbins as Elizabeth Bishop and Michael McFarland as Robert Lowell, assisted by Randall Simons, bring this compelling story to the stage. Directed by Dindy Royster

New Surry Theatre is delighted to announce that Megan Marshall will be present at a Q&A on June 16th after the 3:00 matinee. Ms. Marshall is a Pulitzer Prize winning biographer, whose recent book Elizabeth Bishop: A Miracle for Breakfast portrays the intertwined lives of her former teachers, Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell. Copies of her book will be available at the theater and at Blue Hill Books.
