Sylvia Plath produced some of the most riveting poetry of the 20th century. The best-known of her poems – among them ‘Lady Lazarus’, ‘Daddy’, ‘The Applicant’, ‘Tulips’ – arrived in the extraordinary torrent of creativity unleashed in her final months, posthumously collected in Ariel. Sixty years on from her death, Dead Poets Live retrace the exhilarating, breath-taking, nail-biting ascent that Plath made, by various poetic turns, to the voice, the unique and definitive voice, of those final poems. Denise Gough stars as Sylvia Plath for three nights at Wilton's Music Hall from 7th - 9th February.
