As part of this year’s One City One Book celebrations, we are pleased to present Mary McGuckian’s atmospheric adaptation of a one-act play by W.B. Yeats in which he explored the occult, a subject in which he had a life-long interest. Set during a series of séances hosted by the Dublin Spiritualist Society in 1928, the spirits of Jonathan Swift (Jim Sheridan!) and the two women who loved him too passionately act out the torment of their tragic triangle through the mediums of Miss Henderson (Geraldine James) and Mrs McKenna (Geraldine Chaplin). Tickets now on sale.
