This is a must see performance!!! Robin Hebb is captivating as the Belle of Amherst!!
We were lucky enough to get tickets for opening night and it was sure worth heading out into the freezing rain as she blew us away with her performance.
It was wonderful to be in such a special venue here you felt like you were in Emily Dickensons’ home.
Don’t miss this show, it’s so inspiring. At this time living in Halifax, we sure need to be
reminded of the beauty in nature and of flowers in spring.
It gives one hope.
Thank you Robin… For being our robin in his spring.
The Belle of Amherst, based on the life of Emily Dickinson, comes to the Local Council of Women’s House, 989 Young Ave., Halifax, Thursday through Sunday.
The one-woman show, starring Robin Hebb as the prolific poet, is produced by the Belle Collective in association with Willpower Theatre and Off the Leash productions.
Hebb received her training from Dalhousie University’s acting program and has appeared onstage with LunaSea, Festival Antigonish and Neptune Theatre.
Dickinson welcomes audiences into her lifelong Amherst home in mid-19th century Massachusetts in this play written by William Luce.
Luce looks at Dickinson’s tumultuous relationship with her father, her passionate devotion to her brother, her bond with her sister and her daily life among the birds, the flowers, the winds and shadows on her father’s lawn, said the release.
