Inspired by the life and work of the American poet Emily Dickinson, Susan Glaspell’s 1930 play Alison’s House is a largely forgotten play by an unjustly overlooked playwright.
The action takes place in the Stanhope home in Iowa. It’s New Year’s Eve, 1899, and 18 years to the day that the poet Alison Stanhope Alison died.
Now it’s time to sell up and move on. But though long passed, Alison still haunts and the house still holds secrets.
