Angelica Torn, who played the legendary poet and author in the original run, again stars in the work, which is written and directed by Paul Alexander. Edge will play the ArcLight Theatre through Oct. 6. Alexander's play is set in London on the last day of Plath's life (Feb. 11, 1963) as she reflects on her life, including her early years in Massachusetts, her time at Smith College and her suicide attempt in 1953; the latter was the subject of her autobiographical novel, "The Bell Jar." Edge also focuses on her two children, her love/hate relationship with poet Ted Hughes and the events that led to her death.
