Synopsis


"I hope you aren't thinking that I am a) dead b) annoyed.


I'm neither, but I did have flu."


Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell were two of America's most brilliant poets.


Their friendship was messy, intense, unconventional and profound.


Through their lives, they wrote over 400 letters to each other, spanning decades, continents, political eras.


These are their words.


Susan Smith Blackburn award winner Sarah Ruhl has crafted a stunning and quietly bold piece of theatre about what it means to love someone, and all the questions we regret never asking.
