Emily Dickinson & I: the journey of a portrayal

Movingly told and intensely personal, actress Edie Campbell tells the story of the attempt to produce the work that will capture Emily’s essence ‘using only Emily’s words’. It’s a play about writing, acting and getting into Emily Dickinson’s dress.

Emily Dickinson & I presents a fresh and original look at America’s foremost female poet, as actress Edie Campbell takes the audience through a 14-year journey of writing, acting, and getting into Emily Dickinson’s dress. What results is a beautifully woven biography of both artists as Edie makes sense of her own experiences through Emily’s letters and poems. When is a biographical portrayal not autobiographical?
