Chagrin Valley Little Theatre
Community Theatre

By: William Luce

Show Description:

The poems of Emily Dickinson you may have studied in school. From your days in English class, perhaps you recall some favorite verse. You likely may also have read about her white dress and learned of her reputation as a recluse, but what of the thousands of un-published poems discovered after her death? What of the likes, loves, heartaches, joys, sorrows and triumphs of one of our great American poets? What did she draw on for inspiration? Join us to find out!

William Luce explores the life of America's greatest female poet, from hopeful and successful teenager to the reclusive woman she became in her later years. Actress Sue Beattie recreates the world of this literary legend through excerpts from her poetry, diaries and personal writings, portraying her father, teacher, friends, and the poet herself.
