Offsite|Purgatory

A family saga of decline and fall played out through its two remaining members, a father and his sixteen-year old son, set outside the burnt remains of the former family home. Purgatory was first presented in at the Abbey Theatre Dublin on 19 August 1938, a few months before Yeats's death.

Performed on top of Knocknarea in Summer 2013.
