“The play has been skillfully crafted by William Luce… An unforgettable playgoing experience.” —Variety

“Should be seen in every state of Emily’s America.” —Newsweek

Emily Dickinson’s own original poems, diary entries, and letters welcome us into her Massachusetts home, where she shares snippets of joy and creation amongst the heartache of an isolated and misunderstood life.

The Pedigree of Honey
Does not concern the Bee—
A clover, any time, to him,
Is Aristocracy—

This 1976 play by William Luce offers a glance into the complex life of one of the most prolific poets of our time. Playwright and director Sean Graney returns to Court for the fourth time to direct The Belle of Amherst, with Kate Fry (The Hard Problem; Electra; Caroline, or Change) starring as Emily Dickinson.
