Synopsis

Thursday, Introduction and Q & A with Professor John Ward, retired Chair of the English Department at Kenyon College (Ohio).
Thursday, Free refreshments served from 6:30 pm.

Cynthia Nixon delivers a triumphant performance as Emily Dickinson as she personifies the wit, intellectual independence and pathos of the poet whose genius only came to be recognized after her death. Acclaimed British director Terence Davies exquisitely evokes Dickinson’s deep attachment to her close-knit family along with the manners, mores and spiritual convictions of her time that she struggled with and transcended in her poetry.

Reviews

It’s not easy to do justice to such a beloved, enigmatic artist, but “A Quiet Passion” was well worth the wait.

Stephanie MerryWashington Post

Director Terence Davies brings you into Emily’s everyday life.and shows you the beauty, grace, light and shadow that flowed into her and right through her pen.

As Emily Dickinson, Cynthia Nixon is forthright, sometimes abrasive, often funny and never less than thrilling company.
