Poetry on Stage: Meet Mr. Yeats
POETRY ON STAGE:
MEET MR. YEATS
A cast of well-known local actors brings to life the dramatic biography and memorable words of William Butler Yeats. Using seminal poems, ranging from the serenity of “The Lake Isle of Innisfree” to the terror of “The Second Coming,” the performers will delve into the details of his complex love life, follow his dabbling in the occult, and explore his founding of the Abbey Theatre. Meet Mr. Yeats makes for a fascinating dramatic study of one of the greatest poets of the twentieth century. Directed by Bernard Sahlins.
