The one-woman play is set on the last day of Sylvia Plath's life. The show 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.
