I performed the role of Emily Dickinson in this beautiful new play by playwright and UA Professor Steve Burch in November 2018 at the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center in Tuscaloosa, AL. The piece is largely composed of Dickinson’s poetry and letters to explore and poetically recreate the arc of her relationship with Thomas Higginson.Please scroll through the gallery for images of the performance.
