Delve into the mind of American poet Sylvia Plath, as played by Marcy J. Savastano, in the critically acclaimed play Edge produced by Method Machine. Plath was a poet and author from the '50s and '60s, most famous for the novel The Bell Jar. Paul Alexander's play is set in England on the last day of the prolific writer's life as she reflects on her childhood, her husband poet Ted Hughes and her work. Join us for this intimate performance that is sure to sell out quickly.
"Boldly dramatic and entertaining" - LA Times
"A resurrected Plath... the showcase of a lifetime" - The New York Times
"Troubling and powerful" - New Yorker
MCLA students Kate Adams and Robyn Warfield will open as Finding Foundation.
