Among them: Herman Melville, Emily Dickinson, Willa Cather, Amy Lowell, Oscar Wilde, Charles Dickens, Dylan Thomas, and Noel Coward. With original music by Michael Smith. Conceived and directed by Jamie O’Reilly with Belinda Bremner.


It’s an old old houseWinding stair and all
And there’s a portrait of Isabel Down a dusty hall
She’s in her favorite chair, With her favorite books
One would be Jane Eyre, The other Buddenbrooks
