About this title


Biographical drama

A play based on the life of Emily Dickinson

Characters: 1 female

Interior Set

The Belle of Amherst delicately explores the life of America's greatest woman poet at various stages in her experience from the age of 15, when she was full of hope and success, until she died at 56, a virtual recluse with her door closed against society. Her life is recreated with liberal excerpts from her poetry and by the method of her playing the roles of her father, teacher and friends. Julie Harris played the role on Broadway to great acclaim and won the 1977 Tony Award for Best Actress.

"Magnificent.... Full of passion and poetry and heart.... An arresting, riveting experience." - New York Daily News

"One of the most singularly beautiful evenings I've ever spent in the theater. . . . A beautiful play." - Boston Globe
