An Evening of Yeats
Directed by Mike Fish
A double-bill one-off evening of plays by the Irish poet and dramatist William Butler Yeats.
Inhabiting a surreal, ritualistic world of spirits and agonising cycles of repetition, Yeats' plays form a dream-like companion piece to the world of his acclaimed poetry.
'Purgatory' by W.B Yeats
An old man recounts a family saga of decline, murder, pollution and the perpetual torment of his own mother's spirit in purgatory.
Old Man: Owen Matthew Watts
