Sarah Ruhl, one of the most celebrated and honored playwrights of her generation, returns to Yale Rep with the world premiere of Dear Elizabeth, chronicling the remarkable thirty-year friendship between two of the most celebrated and honored American poets of the 20th century: Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell. With postmarks from Maine to Key West, and as far away as London and South America, Dear Elizabeth is a lyrical and moving portrait of two lives that unfold in letters.
Sarah Ruhl made her Yale Rep debut in 2004 with the world premiere of The Clean House, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Drama. Her collaborations with director Les Waters include the acclaimed productions of Eurydice at Yale Rep in 2006 and the Pulitzer and Tony Award-nominated In the Next Room (or the vibrator play) on Broadway.
