About this show

Angelica Torn stars in Edge, a one-woman play written and directed by Paul Alexander. On the last day of her life, Sylvia Plath reflects on her life as a whole. She relives her childhood, the untimely death of her brilliant father and the suicide attempt that became the basis of her classic autobiographical novel The Bell Jar. Mostly, she re-examines her marriage to the poet Ted Hughes -- and as she succumbs to "what would be called a suicide," the play questions the very act of her death and Hughes's involvement in it. Beginning July 28, every Monday, following the 8pm performance of Edge, Angelica Torn will conduct special post-show talkback discussions with the audience.
