a private domain of Ted Hughes

Ann Henning Jocelyn
Doonreagan House in Cashel, Connemara, for many years home to the author of this play, was where future Poet Laureate Ted Hughes took refuge in the late 1960s, after the death of his wife Sylvia Plath. With him were his two young children by Sylvia, as well as his lover Assia Wevill and baby daughter Schura.

Doonreagan explores the doomed relationship between Ted and Assia during their brief but intense spell in Connemara: an ultimate test of conjugality and family life, at which neither of them had excelled so far.

Based on years of personal research and experience, Doonreagan opens up new angles on this tragic triangle drama and the mystery of Sylvia Plath's death.

Luminous Darkness, The

The Theatre of Jon Fosse

Leif Zern (translated by Ann Henning Jocelyn)

When Jon Fosse (b. 1959) made his playwright début with And We Shall Never Part at the National Theatre in Bergen in 1994, he was already an established author of several novels, collections of poetry and children’s books. His breakthrough in 1996 with the world premiere of Someone Will Arrive at the Norwegian Theatre confirmed his place as a playwright of international standard. Having written since then over twenty more plays, Jon Fosse has become the world’s most performed contemporary European playwright.  

The Luminous Darkness is a book about award winning writer Jon Fosse’s writing for the theatre, examining the attraction of audiences, actors and directors to these exceptional dramas. Leif  Zern finds his way to the core of the dramatic world created by Fosse, analysing the basic insights on which his writing is based and describing the way various European directors and theatres have chosen to stage his plays.
