Letters Home


Monday, April 3, 2017, 7 p.m.
Free with required reservation
Free general admission ticket

Throughout the tumultuous years of the mid-20th century, Sylvia Plath's writing provided a voice for women everywhere, striving for equality and understanding. Today the legendary novelist, playwright,  and screenwriter Rose Leiman Goldemberg continues to forge new pathways for women writers into the 21st century. As the Library celebrates the acquisition of the Goldemberg archive, witness two pioneering women writers collaborating across time with a staged reading featuring Kathleen Chalfant of Letters Home, Goldemberg's groundbreaking theatrical adaptation of Plath's personal correspondence, not staged in New York City since 1979.

Reserve your general admission seat HERE starting March 3 (If you need assistance with online reservations, please visit the welcome desk at the Library for the Performing Arts' Lincoln Center Plaza entrance, where volunteers will make a reservation for you, even if you do not use email. For free events, The Library generally overbooks to ensure a full house. All registered seats are released 15 minutes before start time, so we recommend that you arrive early.)
