Shut UP, Emily Dickinson!


WHAT: Shut UP, Emily Dickinson!
WHEN: Saturday, January 19 @ 7:30pm
WHERE: Academy of Music Theatre, 274 Main St, Northampton, MA

Emily Dickinson: poet, recluse, a**h@le.

Loosely based on the Master Letters, Shut UP, Emily Dickinson! by Tanya O'Debra is a pseudo-historical, quasi-biographical, hysterically existential, sadomasochistic psycho-romance about America’s most brilliant and annoying poetess. Holed up for all eternity in the bedroom of our minds, the “woman in white” stretches into a projection screen for truths, half-truths, truthiness, and truth-less-ness. She’s whatever you want her to be and nothing you imagined. Emily Dickinson is the definition of a difficult woman. *This play includes adult language.

Written by Tanya O’Debra
Original Music by Andrew Moreyellow
Directed by Sara Wolkowitz
Featuring Gregg Bellon

“There can be no doubting O’Debra’s talent: she has a vocal arsenal that puts Saturday Night Live’s Kristin Wiig to shame.” – NY Press
