THE BELLE OF AMHERST by William Luce a multi-award-winning play about Emily Dickinson featuring Renée Bucciarelli directed by Richard Newman
Step into the exquisite Victorian Roedde House parlour for tea and town gossip with the brilliant, witty, and enigmatic 19th century poet Emily Dickinson, The Belle of Amherst. This multi-award-winning one-woman play based on the reclusive genius' writings and poetry recently starred Joelly Richardson Off-Broadway; this production features local actress Renée Bucciarelli, whose work has enjoyed past praise from The New York Times.

The Roedde House Museum, a special piece of local history that was home to Vancouver's first bookbinder, provides an ideal period setting for Emily Dickinson's seemingly fathomless exploration of words, of a vibrantly-lived inner life, and of love. Audience members of this intimate performance will find themselves transported back to an elegant time, in an ambience complete with period music played on the parlour piano, tea served in china cups, and even Emily Dickinson's famous 'black cake'.

Come find out why Miss Dickinson has inspired countless plays, novels, children's books, contemporary poems, dances, performances, and artworks, as well as over 1,600 musical compositions, a Simon & Garfunkel song and, more recently, a chart-topping rock album by Italian singer/supermodel (and former French First Lady) Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. Of Miss Dickinson's boundless ability "to have made all things new" renown literary critic Harold Bloom has pronounced "The Myth"as she was called in her timean equal to Shakespeare.
