William Butler Yeats
A dramatic exploration of the occult, a subject in which Yeats took a lifelong interest. The play features a seance in which Jonathan Swift's voice is projected though a medium, along with those of his two lovers, Stella and Vanessa. Witnessing these forces at work, those attending the seance are forced to confront some uncomfortable truths in their own lives.
