Mainstage Irving - Las Colinas presents Dear Elizabeth
MainStage Irving-Las Colinas has replaced the previously scheduled production of the large-cast play Inherit the Wind with Sarah Ruhl’s Dear Elizabeth. Starring real-life married couple Kristin McCollum and Rob McCollum, the two-person, full-length play will be available for “on demand” streaming for one week, October 3-10.
Based on the compiled letters between poets Robert Lowell and Elizabeth Bishop, in Dear Elizabeth, Ruhl expresses the beauty in simple correspondence. Brought to life by reading Words in Air: The Complete Correspondence Between Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell, Ruhl maps the relationship of the two poets from first meeting to an abbreviated affair and the turmoil of their lives in between.
Access codes are $19 (single) and $29 (group/family). All streams will be available for 48 hours after purchase.
