The Belle of Amherst delicately explores the life of America's greatest woman poet at various stages in her experience from the age of 15, when she was full of hope and success, until she died at 56, a virtual recluse with her door closed against society. Emily Dickinson's life is recreated with liberal excerpts from her poetry and by the method of her playing the roles of her father, teacher and friends. Don't miss what the Boston Globe says is, "one of the most singularly beautiful evenings ever spent in the theater."
