About the Show

The Belle of Amherst is based on the life of poet, Emily Dickinson. The play makes use of her work, diaries, and letters to recollect her encounters with the significant people in her life – family, close friends, and acquaintances. It balances the agony of her seclusion with the brief bright moments when she was able to experience some joy.
