      Hey everyone!

      As an avid theater-goer and huge Plath enthusiast, I found this show
      in Manhattan that perfectly merges the two. If you are in the
      Manhattan area, check it out. It is through Septemeber 20th ONLY.
      This is the info I found on its website. WWW.edgetheplay.com

      "A TERRIFIC NEW PLAY! ANGELICA TORN PLAYS PLATH AS A SEXY, BRITTLE,
      LACERATINGLY FUNNY WOMAN – IT'S A PERFORMANCE NOT TO BE MISSED!"
      - Michael Riedel, NY Post

      This summer, for 11-weeks only, Angelica Torn stars as legendary
      poet, author and icon Sylvia Plath in EDGE, a gripping new one-woman
      drama written and directed by Paul Alexander.

      EDGE is an extraordinary look at one of the twentieth century's most
      influential literary figures, revealing the true Sylvia Plath not
      only as a poet, but also as a child, woman, wife and mother.

      Set in a small London flat on February 11, 1963 – on what would be
      the last day of her life, EDGE is Sylvia Plath's reflection on her
      life as a whole, including her early years in Massachusetts, the
      untimely death of her brilliant father and the famed suicide attempt
      in 1953, which became the basis of her classic autobiographical
      novel "The Bell Jar."

      EDGE also re-examines Plath's infamous love/hate relationship with
      renowned poet Ted Hughes, and ultimately exposes the twisted series
      of events that fueled her own death.

      Angelica Torn recently received the People's Choice Award and the
      Helen Hayes Award for her performance in the Tony Award-winning play
      Side Man (in New York, London and Washington). Her recent film
      credits include Nobody's Fool (with Paul Newman); Domestic
      Disturbance (with John Travolta); Fast Food, Fast Women and The Sixth
      Sense.

      Preview performances begin Tuesday, July 8 at Off-Broadway's DR2
      Theatre (103 E. 15th St.)

      Perf. Schedule: Monday through Friday at 8 p.m.
