Plath and Orion

Closed October 27, 2018

Two plays explore the lives of four different women and the chance encounters that bring them together

Why See Plath and Orion?

Two Insightful Dramas In One Illuminating Evening

Two one-act plays make up one evening of poetic, thought-provoking theatre in Cleveland's Playhouse Square run of Pulitzer Prize-winner Langford Wilson's 'The Great Nebula in Orion' and Greg Cesar's 'Plath, Sexton and the Art of Confession'. Sharing a common theme of chance encounters and conversations between two women, The Great Nebula is a fascinating and brilliantly inventive portrait of two old college friends, Carrie and Louise, who bump into each other after 6 years.

One has married well and the other has focused on a successful career, but as they each confide in the audience it becomes clear there is an emptiness beneath the refined facade of their surface lives. Plath, Sexton and the Art of Confession brings together Pulitzer Prize-winning American poets Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton, who each explored the depths of their souls in visceral Confessional poetry. Having met a seminar, the articulate women developed an affinity and rivalry that punctuated their lives' work.
