James Melo's play is described as follows: "Emily Dickinson produced some of the most haunting and mysterious works of the 19th Century but she was one of the most elusive artistic personalities. In Dickinson's self-imposed solitude, she constructs a world of images, sensations, and emotions ruled by the breadth of her imagination. Through a pairing of her words with the music of renowned composer Amy Beach, audiences embark on a journey through Dickinson's soul and inner world."
