About this show

Inspired by the lives and writings of Sylvia Plath, Ted Hughes, Robert Lowell and Anne Sexton, Amy Freed's satire The Psychic Life of Savages captures four poets struggling to tame the demons that drive them to art - and each other's beds. Love truly is a battlefield as they contend with everything from dimwitted undergraduates to writer's block, from Emily Dickinson's ghost to the realization that acts of creation are not unlike acts of madness - and that the ultimate price of being an artist is sometimes death.
