Letters Home: A Drama

Since her tragic death, Sylvia Plath continues to fascinate readers of her poetry and sole (autobiographical) novel The Bell Jar. Letters Home explores the enigma of the great poet's life, dramatizing correspondence between Plath and her mother Aurelia. Every line of this engrossing drama comes from these letters, evoking a gripping and powerful portrait of the woman, artist, daughter and mother. Originally produced in Off-Broadway by the Women's Project at The American Place Theatre.
"The life of Sylvia Plath has been dramatized sensitively and powerfully. Goldemberg has succeeded in sustaining dramatic tension in her editing and adaptation of the letters."-Hollywood Reporter
