An Irish Play "Gone Yeats"
Gonne/Yeats is the story of the life-long love William Butler Yeats (1865-1839) had for Maud Gonne (MacBride, 1866-1953). Everyone knows of Yeats, a Nobel Laureate, one of the world's most famous poets, an Irish patriot.  Far fewer people know of Maud even though so much of Yeat's poetry was written to, about or for her.  He proposed to her five times, each time she rejected him, much to his sorrow.

Maud, often called Yeats' "muse", was said to be the most beautiful woman in Ireland.  The international press dubbed her Ireland's own Joan of Arc for her unswerving, outspoken, strident commitment to Ireland's freedom through any means necessary.

For her part, she was a firebrand who fed the hungry, stopped evictions of the poor from their homes, even at the price of imprisonment and broken health.  The life-long love of one Nobel Laureate, she was the mother of another (Seán MacBride, Peace Prize, 1974).  She broke down countless barriers for women.  She was refined, educated, cultured, an actress, a writer - but more than these, an ardent voice for the poor and homeless and a tireless "soldier" in support of Ireland's freedom.

This is their story told through literary cabaret, a mix of dialogue, Yeats' poetry, excerpts of Maud's autobiography and letters, music and song.  The run-time is 1 hour. 
4:00 p.m.
