It’s a cold day in London, and Sylvia Plath is crazy mad enough to tell all in the hours before she kills herself. Or at least Plath – interpreted by Angelica Torn in a part created for her – tells a hyperventilating version of all imagined by playwright-director Paul Alexander, another intellectual fascinated by the American poet who died six months after Marilyn Monroe and left behind equally opinionated mourners.(Gwyneth Paltrow will play Plath on screen this fall.) The character on stage ranting about her tortured marriage may or may not be trusted with the truth, but the intense performance by Torn – daughter of Geraldine Page and Rip Torn – communicates its own honest poetry.
