Remembering Emily Dickinson

The U.S. Embassy sponsors a play by an Uruguayan writer honoring the American poet.


Jan. 22, 2004


The U.S. Embassy’s public affairs section is sponsoring the production of “Momentos Con Emily,” a play by Uruguayan writer Milton Schinca.

The play opens Friday, Jan. 23, at 9 p.m. at Teatro del Centro, on Plaza Libertad. The production features distinguished Uruguayan actors, Estela Medina and Levon, and is directed by Nelly Goitino, a prominent member of Uruguayan theater.

The work is based on Emily Dickinson's thoughts about the mysteries of love, identity and death. The 19th century American poet lived a private life, often sending baskets and flowers with notes and poems to friends and sick town folk. Only 10 of her poems were published in her lifetime. After her death in 1886, more than 1,700 poems, which she had bound into booklets, were discovered. The fame of her poetry spread until she was acclaimed throughout the world.

The play is scheduled to run six consecutive weekends as follows:
Fridays and Saturdays at 9:00 PM
Sundays at 7:30 PM

Box office information:
Open daily after 6:00 PM - Phone: 902-8915

Ticket Prices:
Fridays and Sundays U$100. Tarjeta Joven and Jubilados U$60
Sundays: U$120. Tarjeta Joven and Jubilados U$80
