Starring Jeanann Power (co-founder of the Edge of the Wood Theater in Evanston, IL) as Emily Dickinson.
In this play by William Luce, Ms. Power creates a vivid portrait of Emily Dickenson. The eccentric poetess, who wore only white and remained housebound for 26 years, comes alive with grace and humor through conversations with her family, her neighbors, and her mischievous cat. Although Emily Dickenson’s life was reportedly one of frustration and disappointment, her poems glow through, revealing her internal joy and genius.
