Stars to recite Sylvia Plath’s Ariel as she intended
As part of the London Literature Festival, 40 actresses and poets, including Phyllis Logan, Samantha Bond, Anna Chancellor and Siobhan Redmond will each read a single work from the restored edition of the manuscript found on Plath’s desk after her suicide at the age of 30 in February 1963. Plath predicted that the collection would “make my name”.
The Royal Festival Hall performance on May 26 will be introduced by Plath’s daughter, Frieda Hughes, 53, who wrote a foreword to the restored version.
