The Belle of Amherst by William Luce

Thursday, March 22, 4pm

Friday, March 23, 8pm at The State Theatre $20*

Emily Dickinson’s poetry, letters, and diary entries deliver a glimpse into the complex life of one of our most intriguing poets.  5 actresses imagine and re-imagine Emily as she contemplates love, requited and unrequited between women and women, and women and men, classism, death, and the perils of life. The Belle of Amherst, by William Luce ,“dwells in possibility” sand skirts “the acres  of perhaps.”



Roxanna Arrojo, Elizabeth Bagley, Cynthia Mazzant, Elaine Meder-Wilgus, and Lissa Ramirez
