Reading of Plaguey Hill by Paul Muldoon

TueDec  12020 /  7:00 pm

Irish Repertory Theatre presents a reading of Plaguey Hill, a new work by Pulitzer-Prize winning poet and Princeton Professor Paul Muldoon, read by Tony Award-winner Liev Schreiber. Written over the first two weeks of April 2020, “Plaguey Hill” is an impressionistic account of day-to-day life during the Covid-19 pandemic. Though the poem is set in Sharon Springs, New York, it harkens back to memories of the burial mound of Plaguey Hill, in Friars Bush graveyard, Belfast, where victims of the 1830s cholera epidemic were laid to rest. The poem takes the form of an intricately locked series of 15 sonnets known as a crown, or corona. Performed on YouTube Live and viewed via public link/on IrishRep YouTube Channel. FREE; suggested donation of $10. RSVP not required but encouraged.
