Emily Dickinson Performance at Glessner House Museum March 30, 2014

Betsey Means as Emily Dickinson
Glessner House Museum, located at 1800 S. Prairie Avenue in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood, will host a performance entitled “I Dwell in Possibility – An Intimate Afternoon with Emily Dickinson” on Sunday March 30, 2014 at 2:00pm.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) is regarded as one of the greatest American poets, in spite of living a mostly introverted and reclusive life. She wrote poetry of tremendous power, questioning the nature of immortality and death, and her work has remained in print continuously since her death. The performance is adapted and performed by Betsey Means of WomanLore and is directed by Eileen Vorbach.

Glessner House Museum is a National Historic Landmark and the last surviving work by architect H. H. Richardson in Chicago. Completed in 1887, the museum is recognized nationwide for its groundbreaking architecture as well as its important collection of arts and crafts decorative arts.

Admission is $20 per person. Prepaid reservations are required and may be made by calling 312-326-1480. The museum is easily accessible by taking the #3 or #4 bus on Michigan Avenue to 18th Street, and then walking two blocks east.
