Adults $15 Students under 18 FREE

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.
Catherine Glynn began rehearsals for The Belle of Amherst 26 years ago and performed it at St. John's University as her senior thesis project for her BA in Humanities. Since then she has acted studied and taught theatre at UT Austin and The University of Delaware's Professional Theatre Training Program. She has acted with the Austin Shakespeare Festival, Riverside Shakespeare, The Rude Mechanicals, Collaboraction, SPAC, The Commonweal, Chicago Dramatists and The New American Theatre among others.
