 THE BELLE OF AMHERST

Emily Dickinson’s own original poems, diary entries, and letters welcome us into her Massachusetts home, where she shares snippets of joy and creation amongst the heartache of an isolated and misunderstood life.

This 1976 play by William Luce offers a glance into the complex life of one of the most prolific poets of our time. Playwright and director Sean Graney return to Court for the fourth time to direct The Belle of Amherst, with Kate Fry (The Hard ProblemElectraCaroline, or Change) starring as Emily Dickinson.
