WHO KILLED ROB COCKYN
Our next production will be The Veil by Conor McPherson.
Set around a haunted house hemmed in by a restive, starving populace, The Veil weaves Ireland's troubled colonial history into a transfixing story about the search for love, the transcendental and the circularity of time.
May 1822, rural Ireland. The defrocked Reverend Berkeley arrives at the crumbling former glory of Mount Prospect House to accompany seventeen year-old Hannah to England. She is to be married off to a marquis in order to resolve the debts of her mother's estate. However, compelled by the strange voices that haunt his beautiful young charge and a fascination with the psychic current that pervades the house, Berkeley proposes a seance, the consequences of which are catastrophic.
Lady Madeleine Lambroke - a widow
Hannah Lambroke - her daughter
Maria Lambroke, known as ‘Grandie’, Madeleine’s grandmother
The Reverend Berkeley - a defrocked Anglican minister
Mr Charles Audelle - a philosopher
Mrs Goulding - a housekeeper and nurse
Mr Fingal - an estate manager
