Show Info


Developed and first presented at The Actors Studio in 2003, EDGE, written and directed by Paul Alexander, is set on the last day in the life of Sylvia Plath, one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century. Over the past four years, EDGE has continued to enrapture audiences around the world, from the United States and England to New Zealand and Australia. The one-woman play deals with Plath’s life as a whole, including her early years in Boston, the untimely death of her brilliant father, and her infamous suicide attempt of 1953, which became the basis of her classic novel, The Bell Jar. EDGE also examines her tumultuous marriage to the dark, enigmatic poet, Ted Hughes, and ultimately reveals the unsettling sequence of events that ended with her death. Angelica Torn is Sylvia Plath in Edge Written & Directed by Paul Alexander.
