"Hope is the thing with feathers..."

Inspired by the life and legacy of Emily Dickinson, Susan Glaspell earned a Pulitzer Prize for her play of a family struggling to balance their private life with their very public image.

December 31, 1899: When the home of late poet Alison Stanhope is to be sold, someone will risk the house and those within it to keep secrets it holds from being discovered. And on the cusp of the new century, one generation must come to grips with the destruction of its way of life by the next. Is the life of the poet also part of her work?  Does a poet's voice belong to her family or to the world?  Can a family hold its traditions together by tearing itself apart?

The hopes of the living, the hopes of the departed, and the life of hope itself are all contained in ALISON'S HOUSE.
