A mouse befriends a literary lion in Mouse in House, a performance for children by Jane Franklin Dance. Adapted from The Mouse of Amherst by Elizabeth Spires (The Big Meow), this lively and captivating performance traces the unlikely friendship between Emmaline, a mouse, and Emily Dickinson, the reclusive 19th-century poet of undying greatness. When a gust of wind blows one of Dickinson's poems into Emmaline's life, her outlook forever changes. Inspired, the mouse decides to become a poet herself. Dance recreates this powerful tale about the ability of anyone, no matter their age, gender or species, to express their innermost feelings through art.
