Murder. Intrigue. Villany. All commonplace matters to be dealt with before afternoon tea. For this character piece with Bria O’Brien, we simultaneously channeled the spirits of Emily Dickinson and Annie Oakley. As we quickly discovered, nothing summons quiet rage quite like a candlelit hoop skirt, but cradling an antique pistol in your hands helps to soothe the demons.
