Edge at the ArcLight Theatre

Paul Alexander's one-woman show Edge will open at the ArcLight Theatre on 9 Sep 2007, following previews from 4 Sep and running through to 6 Oct 2007.

Edge is set on the last day in the life of Sylvia Plath, one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century. 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. It 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.

Developed and first presented at The Actors Studio in 2003, Edge will have prior engagements in Los Angeles and San Francisco, followed by a second tour of Australia and New Zealand, all in 2008.

Directed by its author Paul Alexander, the play is performed by Angelica Torn.
