Plath & Orion
Two one-act plays of chance meeting and "catch-up" conversation between two women. In both, the women address their thoughts and comments directly to the audience, as well as to each other; their poignant, telling and poetic conversations reveal plainly their individual boundaries of hope and reality.
Lanford Wilson was a Pulitzer Prize-winning, American playwright. His plays were often ensemble pieces ruled not so much by plot as by the behaviors of rich characters both funny and heartfelt. Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton were Pulitzer Prize-winning American poets, known for a personal verse that furthered the genre known as Confessional poetry. Their lives and work are referenced in the latter piece. The plays are "companion" pieces designed for audiences to focus on and identify with the character-driven narratives.
