In her later years, Emily Dickinson would speak to visitors from behind a locked door and felt most comfortable communicating via a basket lowered from her bedroom window. Luckily, in the after-life, the poetic genius behind "I'm nobody!" and "Because I could not stop for Death" has finally shaken her agoraphobia in Time Travel with Emily Dickinson. During this one-woman play, writer-performer MiMi Zannino becomes Dickinson, the writer of 2,000 striking and gorgeous poems (of which only seven were published during her lifetime). Let the poet herself tell you about her relationship with the dashing Colonel Thomas Wentworth Higginson, commander of the First South Carolina Regiment and her literary mentor, during this special presentation at Arts Barn.
