In THE BELLE OF AMHERST, Emily Dickinson welcomes audiences into her lifelong Amherst homestead in mid-19th century Massachusetts. While Dickinson found solace in solitude through much of her life, acclaimed playwright William Luce weaves her poems, diaries, and letters into a one-woman portrait of one of America’s greatest and most prolific poets, mixing Dickinson’s encounters with close friends and family with the poet’s own, often amusing observations. “Full of passion and poetry and heart” (New York Daily News), THE BELLE OF AMHERST illuminates a brilliant wordsmith through the words she left behind.
