Poet, daughter, sister, lover, and a rebellious American — these various facets of Emily Dickinson, esteemed poet, are explored in Alena Smith’s ‘Dickinson.’ Chock-full of wacky humor, feminist ideals, and subversive concepts, the show tries to change the perception that Emily was an asocial, introverted and constantly melancholic individual. Set in the 19th Century, the comedy-drama takes historical facts and embellishes them with a contemporary twist.

We see Emily trying to figure out the true purpose of her poetry, struggling due to her situation with Sue, and also tackling the hostility between Austin and her father.

Later, Emily meets Vinnie and Austin and talks about how old-fashioned and regressive their father is. Clearly, Emily is now on Austin’s side and understands why he wanted to secede from the family.

Afterward, Emily goes to meet her mother, who has been in bed for a week. When a little mouse enters the room, Emily’s mother believes it is her sister, the late Lavinia, since it was her favorite animal.
