Sylvia Plath has been and will be remembered throughout history. She was able to capture and describe mental health in such a way, that people even now can read through her works and exclaim, “Yes!

The concept of adapting A Room of One’s Own to the stage is a fascinating one. How does one adapt an essay into the form a play? And how is it done in a way that will captivate the audience? It’s safe to say that both the director and adapter of A Room of One’s...
