The Hound Within The Heart

Fri 31st May 2019 7:30PM
Aldeburgh Jubilee Hall, Aldeburgh, IP15 5BN
Common Ground present a play with music about the life and loves of American poetic genius, 
Emily Dickinson
One of the greatest and most loved of American poets, the reclusive "Belle of Amherst", continues to be an elusive figure. In The Hound Within The Heart, we shatter the myth of Emily as a virginal neurotic, and present her as a fierce, brilliant and sexually charged writer in charge of her own destiny.
Was there a secret love in her life? What was the explosive event in her past that "stopped… existence"?   
A "wild woman of words", intensely engaged with the world, and able to write poetry that disturbs and delights us today. "My life has stood - a loaded gun", she wrote. Told in her own words, and with the haunting music of Pat Whymark, this is a story of genius in the process of formation and in the act of overwhelming production.
Cast includes Julian Harries, Emily Bennett and Janeena Sims as Emily.
