Torn Page Theater in association with The W.B. Yeats Society presents an APT 929 Production
Experience the mystery of Irish mythology via W.B. Yeats’ rarely performed poetic masterpiece The Only Jealousy of Emer at Torn Page, a secret theater space in the heart of Chelsea. The former home of celebrated film and theater stars Rip Torn and Geraldine Page transforms into an abode where ancient Irish entities wield their wills and desires, ritualized with stylistic influences from the Japanese Noh theatre , in a site-specific and immersive rendition, directed by Dublin’s renowned Director, and former Deputy Artistic Director of The Abbey Theatre, Ray Yeates. The play tells the story of the Irish hero, Cuchulain and the difficult choice faced by his wife, Emer, to restore his mortality by making a great sacrifice.
