Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton, Pulitzer Prize-winning American poets, were known for personal verse that furthered the genre dubbed confessional poetry. Two one-act plays — Lanford Wilson's The Great Nebula Orion and Greg Cesear's Plath, Sexton and the Art of Confession — depict a chance meeting and "catch-up" conversation between the two women as the poets address their thoughts and comments directly to the audience. Produced by the Cesear's Forum theater company, the "companion play" performances takes place tonight at 8 at Kennedy's Theatre; additional performances continue through Oct. 14. Tickets are $18.
