A FIERY AND STILL VOICE:
WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT AT HOME
Step back in time to 1866 for a view into a day in the life of William Cullen Bryant, an extraordinary ordinary man. Experience first-hand this fierce abolitionist and his progressive commentary on America’s social injustices. A Fiery and Still Voice offers an intimate portrait of the man behind the poet. This is a play about love, passion, and justice, and the natural beauty of the world that surrounds us.
A Fiery and Still Voice, features Court Dorsey as William Cullen Bryant, and Melissa Redwin as a docent of the Trustees. It is directed by Priscilla Kane Hellweg with costumes by Vanessa James, and is performed on-site at the William Cullen Bryant Homestead.
