“What is this, behind this veil, is it ugly, is it beautiful?” – Sylvia Plath
Moments of beauty, moments of hope, moments of rage all brought together in this intimate portrait of Sylvia Plath. One of the most important voices of the 20th century, Sylvia Plath’s words have won a Pulitzer Prize, are a staple in English literature classes, and have introduced confessional poetry to scores of young adults.
“The tulips should be behind bars like dangerous animals;
They are opening like the mouth of some great African cat,
And I am aware of my heart: it opens and closes
Its bowl of red blooms out of sheer love of me.” – Sylvia Plath
US Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky offers “Thrashing, hyperactive, perpetually accelerated, the poems of Sylvia Plath catch the feeling of a profligate, hurt imagination, throwing off images and phrases with the energy of a runaway horse or a machine with its throttle stuck wide open. All the violence in her work returns to that violence of imagination, a frenzied brilliance and conviction.”
“I am terrified by this dark thing that sleeps in me; all day I feel its soft, feathery turnings, its malignity.” – Sylvia Plath
Join Tempest for this revealing drama starring Elaine Meder-Wilgus as Sylvia Plath with Cynthia Mazzant as her mother, mentor, and inner voice.
“I took a deep breath and listened to the old bag of my heart: I am, I am, I am.” – Sylvia Plath
