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

Boy: Mike Fish
