Undermain Theatre presents Dear Elizabeth staged reading
The Undermain Theatre continues its popular reading series, Undermain Reads, at the Dallas Museum of Art, with Dear Elizabeth by Sarah Ruhl.
Dear Elizabeth will be performed as a staged reading in letters from Elizabeth Bishop to Robert Lowell and back again with this remarkably humorous, lyrical and moving portrait of love and life adapted by Sarah Ruhl, one of the most celebrated playwrights of our generation. Over 30 years, the poets Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell exchanged more than 400 letters. One of the greatest correspondences in literary history, their letters illuminate their artistry, world travels, their individual triumphs, losses and the deep affection these two poetic giants shared for one another.
