YEATS BESOTTED

Directed by Cathal Quinn
Philip Judge as W.B. Yeats, Melissa Nolan as Maud Gonne and Sean Duggan as Thomas Westropp Bennett.

Love, Politics and Proposals!

‘Poets should never marry. The world should thank me for not marrying you’ Maud Gonne

Yeats Besotted charts the relationship between Irish Nobel Laureate W.B. Yeats and his muse and greatest love, Maud Gonne, from their very first meeting in 1889 to Senator Yeats’s resignation from the Seanad in 1928. Ireland was changing rapidly and both were inextricably linked to many of those changes.

Yeats Besotted dramatises the turbulent journey of Yeats and Gonne - he proposed at least four times - and includes the famous divorce debate of 1925 as well as Maud Gonne’s visceral attack on Queen Victoria’s visit to Ireland. The piece incorporates a number of poems Yeats wrote for Gonne, in English and Irish, translated for the very first time by Gabriel Rosenstock.
