The Veil by Conor McPherson
Quotidian Theatre at The Writer's Center
Bethesda, MD
Share this event:

Quotidian is pleased to present the U.S. premiere of Conor McPherson's The Veil, which debuted in 2011 at London's National Theatre. Set in a haunted mansion in rural Ireland in 1822, surrounded 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. "An atmospheric and haunting tale of lost souls." - Evening Standard

"Imagine a Chekhov play full of ghosts and things that go bump in the night and you will get some idea of Conor McPherson's strange and fitfully entertaining drama The Veil."  The Telegraph

Featuring Christine Alexander, Michael Avolio, Jane Squier Bruns, John Decker, Steve LaRocque, Chelsea Mayo, Stephanie Mumford, and Michele Osherow

Directed by Jack Sbarbori


"With solid acting, which Quotidian has, 'The Veil' can hold an audience as well as any BBC America miniseries, and with far richer language and ghosts."
The Washington Post

"Suspenseful and well crafted. A good old yarn that slowly unfolds with a few bumps in the night. Quotidian has winningly interpreted a bourgeoning classic."
MD Theatre Guide

"Well-paced direction, stirring performances from many Quotidian favorites, and McPherson's trademark poetry as dialogue and quirky characterizations... The excellent ensemble acting I've come to expect from Quotidian."
DC Theatre Scene

"Quotidian, with its reputation for understated yet compelling shows, has gone all-out with this production and done Mr. McPherson proud."
Broadway World

"'The Veil' is eye-catching and ear-catching, and the story will capture you."
DC Metro Theater Arts

The New York Times calls Conor McPherson "the finest playwright of his generation."
