Inspired by the life and reputation of Emily Dickinson, Susan Glaspell's play of a family struggling with how to celebrate and protect the legacy of a famous but famously reclusive ancestor won the Pulitzer Prize in 1931. When the home of late poet Alison Stanhope is to be sold, some of her heirs will risk the house and those within it to keep secrets it holds from being discovered. Is the life of the poet also part of her work? Does a poet's voice belong to her family or to the world? The hopes of the living, the hopes of the departed, and the life of hope itself are all contained in ALISON'S HOUSE.
