The Veil - by Conor McPherson

The Veil by Conor McPherson

One of Ireland's leading playwrights, Conor McPherson sets his latest play around a house hemmed in by a restive, starving populace in rural Ireland. In May 1822, the defrocked Reverend Berkeley arrives at the once-glorious Mount Prospect House to accompany seventeen-year-old Hannah to England, where she is to be married off in order to absolve her mother's debts. But compelled by the peculiar voices that haunt his enchanting young charge and a fascination with the spirits that pervade the house, Berkeley proposes a séance—to disastrous consequences. Weaving Ireland's troubled colonial past into a riveting tale about the pursuit of love, the transcendental, and the circular nature of time, McPherson directed the world premiere of his newest work at London's National Theatre in fall 2011.
