The Belle of Amherst

April 14-18, 2021

THE BELLE OF AMHERST • Written by William Luce

The Belle of Amherst, a provocative one-woman show based on the life Emily Dickinson. In her Amherst, Massachusetts home, the reclusive nineteenth-century poet Emily Dickinson recollects her past through her poetry and letters. The play, written by William Luce, shows us both the pain and the joy of Dickinson’s secluded life. Drawing largely from Emily’s poetry and letters, The Belle of Amherst is a breathing autobiography of a true nonconformist.
