Dickinson:The Secret Life of Emily Dickinson
by William Roetzheim
directed by Susanne Boulle
The myth of Emily Dickinson is that she was a prudish Victorian spinster who wrote beautiful poetry. The reality is that she was a stunning creative intellect coping with an emotionally and sexually abusive Father, an enabling mother, surfacing homosexual feelings, raging sexual emotions, and mental breakdowns. This play brings the real Emily Dickinson to life, with all of her depth and complexities, and takes the audience on a magical journey of love and discovery.
