Dickinson Meets Shakespeare in the Garden

Saturday, May 28 at 1:30PM

Enjoy an afternoon performance in the garden at the Emily Dickinson Museum, where actors from the Springfield Conservatory of the Arts and Hampshire Shakespeare Company bring to life scenes from Dickinson’s most beloved plays by William Shakespeare, interspersed with works by the poet inspired by Shakespeare. The program is free and open to the public. Reservations are not required.

This program is part of a series surrounding the traveling exhibition First Folio! The Book that Gave us Shakespeare from the Folger Shakespeare Library in DC, on view in May at the Mead Art Museum at Amherst College. Amherst College is the only location in Massachusetts to host the original First Folio as part of a national exhibition celebrating 400 years of Shakespeare.
