“I don’t come out of an oral tradition, I come out of silence.”
Colm Tóibín
(b. May 30, 1955)

This one got away, but we hope it will return, somewhere, sometime.

The wonderful writer Colm Tóibín sifted through the early writings of the much-beloved poet Eavan Boland to script a performance that was livestreamed all too briefly. Performed by Siobhán Cullen, Boland: Journey of a Poet is now available, alas, only as a preview and a very informative downloadable show program.

It may come around again. Watch for it.
