DEAR ELIZABETH A Play in Letters From Elizabeth Bishop to Robert Lowell and Back Again

by | Read by JoBeth Williams, Julian Sands

Poetry & Drama • 1.25 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2014

"The art of losing isn't hard to master," Elizabeth Bishop wrote in her poem "One Art," most likely thinking, in part, of her lifelong friend, poet Robert Lowell. Both poets won numerous awards for their works, and both went on to define American verse in the 1950s and '60s. In this deft and intimate examination of their thirty-year relationship, film stalwarts JoBeth Williams (THE BIG CHILL) and Julian Sands (THE KILLING FIELDS) deliver Bishop's and Lowell's own words through the many letters they wrote back and forth. This production, recorded before a live audience, allows Williams and Sands to lift the words from the written correspondence and turn them into a true conversation between equals about life, longing, and loss. B.P. [Published: JANUARY 2016]
