The Only Jealousy Of Emer

The Only Jealousy of Emer 

A Universal Story.

The father of Irish National Drama, W. B. Yeats, wrote this tale of unrequited love in a style which links Irish folklore with elements of the Japanese Noh theatre tradition.  Masks, poetry, and dance made the telling of this gentle tragedy about Emer, the wife of the legendary Irish hero Cuchulain, into a play which transcends cultural boundaries.

The Only Jealousy of Emer was often presented as a double bill with The Crusader.  This double feature cost only $4 during the 1983 Edmonton Fringe Festival.
