A Woman of the World

About This Show

Best known as Emily Dickinson’s posthumous editor, Mabel Loomis Todd is a woman of the world. Priding herself on being an inspired conversationalist, she invited scandal by enjoying a glass of wine in mixed company, and she certainly wasn’t afraid to expose her ankles in a dress.

Now in her 70s and living on Hog Island in Maine, the accomplished journalist and naturalist regales us with tales of her storied life, spilling secrets and revealing the true nature of her relationship with one of America’s most celebrated poets.

Pulitzer Prize finalist Rebecca Gilman’s world premiere play is brought to the stage in an insightful and impassioned tour-de-force performance by Kathleen Chalfant.
