AAPEX's Jaz Dorsey and Dennis Corcoran

Hi. My name is Dennis Corcoran. I am the founder of a small, local (STL) theatre company, The Black Mirror. We are putting on a special program in mid-December at The Firecracker Press entitled Gonne/Yeats. It is what my collaborator, Jaz Dorsey, calls Literary Cabaret.
In a nutshell, the program focuses on the lives and relationship of Maud Gonne (McBride) and William Butler Yeats using his poetry, episodes from her life and some music/singing of Loreena McKennitt. Our aim in developing this piece is to stimulate awareness of and interest in Maud Gonne, a singularly remarkable character in her own right.
I hope you can join us - and that you will spread the word among your students and colleagues who might find Yeats' poetry and the life of this special woman, Maud Gonne, of interest. The venue, Firecracker Press, is both intimate and unique. We staged Samuel Beckett's KRAPP'S LAST TAPE there last year to fabulous reviews, both for the program itself as well as the choice of venue.
Seating is limited. The cost is a suggested $10 donation, making it financially accessible to all. Go raibh míle maith agaibh agus beannachtaí.
