The audience is invited into the life and times of Emily Dickinson as the Poet is celebrated with heart, humor and radiance. Via “interactive bookends,” Ms. Grace reaches out to the audience for words and ideas and weaves them into the fabric of the play.
Emily’s secrets combine with wondrous creativity as her poems take shape in radical form – shocking to the fashions of her time. This is an Emily Dickinson of irrepressible delight, depth, intrigue and passion. With interactive elements at play in this piece, the Poet’s creativity is mixed with that of the audience – empowering the voice of everyone in the theater!
“It was a whopping success.”
Jan Buttram, Artistic Director, Abingdon Theatre Company
