“I thought of you tonight”.
When love ends with loss, can beauty come from grief?
Can death reaffirm life through art?
A beautiful one-man show, an elegy to life, love and loss, Incantata tells the story of a man celebrating and remembering a great love affair. Incantata is written by one of Ireland’s most revered writers, the New York based, Pulitzer Prize-winning Paul Muldoon and interpreted for the stage by Stanley Townsend and Sam Yates.
Fresh from a fall 2019 run at Dublin’s famed Gate Theatre, Incantata premiered to wide acclaim at the 2018 Galway International Arts Festival.
Galway International Arts Festival, Jen Coppinger, and Irish Repertory Theatre are very grateful to Culture Ireland for its support of the US premiere of Incantata.
