Set in a haunted mansion in rural Ireland in 1822, The Veil weaves Ireland's troubled colonial history into a transfixing story about the search for love and the circularity of time. Written by Conor McPherson, the Tony-winning playwright of The Seafarer, the atmospheric play features a crumbling estate, a hasty marriage to settle debts, strange voices and, ultimately, a séance -- the consequences of which are catastrophic. This is the U.S. premiere of McPherson's acclaimed drama, which debuted in 2011 at London's National Theatre, where it was described as a Chekhovian play "full of ghosts and things that go bump in the night ... [a] strange and fitfully entertaining drama" (The Telegraph). Learn More
