The doomed relationship between poet laureate Ted Hughes and Assia Wevill during their brief but intense spell in Connemara is explored in a new play by Ann Henning Jocelyn.
The world premier of Doonreagan, directed by award-winning Alex Dmitriev, opens at Piccadilly’s Jerymn Street Theatre, voted 2012 fringe theatre of the year.
Following the suicide of his first wife, American poet Sylvia Plath, Hughes took sanctuary in Doonreagan House with his mistress Wevill, a married woman he had been having an affair with before Plath’s death.
