Playwright: Rebecca Branscom

"The Poet's Play" is an uncommon love story that begins with its heroine in full mourning over the tragic drowning of her oldest and closest brother. Her story reveals what can happen when love pursues us when we least expect it and how faithful fortitude through the toil of life's circumstances can produce adventures beyond comprehension. Inspired by the life and poetry of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, this play is a celebration of divine interruptions, unexpected restorations, poetry, and of course, the unbridled power of love.

Emerging Artists returns with their one-of-a-kind festival. Visit the theater any evening during this three-week event, and you'll find yourself transported in a number of surprising ways: by a single performer embodying a whole host of characters; by a more experimental theater piece "done differently" that challenges and delights; by a cozy two-person show exploring relationships; or perhaps by a bouncy new musical that will have you humming. Emerging Artists has always been about new works, new talents, new voices. That's never been more evident than now.

NO REFUNDS will be granted.
