Emily | Theatre Philadelphia

Emily Dickinson is famous for her solitary lifestyle. The story of how she timidly hid away her poetry was fashioned by editors that did not want to acknowledge the radical thinker she truly was. In this limited edition, at-home event Emily reaches out to you personally through the mail over the course of five weeks. Every few days, you receive a new correspondence from Emily inviting you into her life. Letters, custom art, highly personal objects, all come directly to your door, asking you to undo the erasure of her legacy.
