The fifth play in the Her Voice series is a free professional reading of Dear Elizabeth by Sarah Ruhl.
SYNOPSIS: Based on the compiled letters between poets Robert Lowell and Elizabeth Bishop, Sarah 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 abbrieviated affair and the turmoil of their lives in between.
The Bridge Initiative: Women in Theatre is thrilled to host Her Voice, a monthly play reading and music series running October 2017 to April 2018 in collaboration with the ASU Kerr Cultural Center in Scottsdale. Capitalizing on the ASU Kerr’s professional sound, lighting and technical talent, we will feature new works presented by local musicians, directors and actors.
We are also excited to continue our partnership with musicians Dr. Marilyn Clark Silva and Sarah Off of Phoenix based Tandem Duo. They will be presenting new works by female composers to our audiences in the series.
NOTE: Our actors and director are paid a stipend and play rights are secured and paid for. We are able to offer these readings free through funding provided by our generous donors. If you would like to contribute, please visit our Donors page.
