Emily Dickinson: poet, recluse, a**h@le. Loosely based on the Master Letters, Shut UP, Emily Dickinson! is a pseudo-historical, quasi-biographical, hysterically existential, sadomasochistic psycho-romance about America’s most brilliant and annoying poetess. Holed up for all eternity in the bedroom of our minds, the “woman in white” stretches into a projection screen for truths, half-truths, truthiness, and truth-less-ness. She’s whatever you want her to be and nothing you imagined. Emily Dickinson is the definition of a difficult woman.
“There can be no doubting O’Debra’s talent: she has a vocal arsenal that puts Saturday Night Live’s Kristin Wiig to shame.” – NY Press
