On Saturday, June 6, at 7:30 p.m., the Center Stage Theater presents Dear Elizabeth, a moving and innovative reading starring Sylvia Short, John Fink and Meredith Raxter. Written by Sarah Ruhl, one of the most celebrated playwrights of her generation, this play paints a portrait of the remarkable 30-year friendship between two of the most honored American poets of the 20th century— Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell. Using their actual letters with postmarks from across the country and around the world, Ruhl illustrates a relationship full of artistic admiration and warm camaraderie. Directed by Allison Narver, this artfully woven story captures the beauty and power of language as two poets navigate the terrain of an ever-shifting world

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online here, or by calling the theater’s box office at 805/ 963-0408.
