The great 19th-century American poet Emily Dickinson was known as a hermit, never venturing far from the confines of her Amherst, Mass. homestead. But Wednesday, September 14, the so-called “virgin recluse” will dominate the stage at Ackley Theater in William Luce’s classic one-woman play “The Belle of Amherst.”
Prof. Paula Mann, director of the College’s theater program, plays Dickinson in this ambitious one-woman performance, which lasts 80 minutes without intermission. The show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 for the general public, free for GMC students, faculty and staff.
