Genre & Style:
Enter the suburban Boston kitchen – and world – of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Anne Sexton in this riveting chamber musical. Home alone one windy night, estranged from family, haunted by memories, Anne turns to her art for solace and her imagination soars. Join the legendary housewife-turned-poet on her wild ride though the terrors and exhilarations of creative genius in this theatrical tour-de-force.
