Feb. 26-March 14
starring Ellen Crawford
directed by Chris Schario (Public Theater, Auburn, Maine)
Crawford is best known for appearing in 112 episodes of ER (1994-2003) as Nurse Lydia Wright.
Emily Dickinson is best known for having composed 1,700 poems, mostly in the 1860s.
William Luce's one-woman play appeared on Broadway in 1976, and the following year, Julie Harris won the Tony for Best Actress.
Crawford says that "though people frequently think of Emily Dickinson as a sad recluse ... she truly grabs life with both hands ... as she says, 'I find ecstasy in living.' Those who assume a visit with her will be a dose of doom and gloom are in for a big surprise.'"
Crawford recently appeared in New York in Eugene O'Neill's A Touch of the Poet with Daniel J. Travanti (Hill Street Blues).
Tickets: $10-$21. Post-play receptions on Friday-Saturday, Feb. 27-28. Talk-back session with Ellen Crawford after the show on Thursday, March 5.
