Written by W.B. Yeats

A hawk cries, a ghost is born, a hero is dead and Emer calls for love.

Two actresses from Deadly-She Wolf Assassin at Armageddon! meet in a bare-bones East Village studio, where they conjure up the supernatural world of W.B. Yeats. Extremely minimal, extremely challenging, yet subtly furious.

Following the critically acclaimed, mesmerizing jazz and martial arts theater piece Deadly-She Wolf Assassin at Armageddon! by Fred Ho and Ruth Margraff, CJA is pleased to launch this new minimalist telling of two heroic Irish tales by the legendary Irish poet W.B. Yeats. At the Hawk’s Well and The Only Jealousy of Emer are two of five shorts plays known as the “Cuchulain Cycle” written by Yeats, which were influenced by traditional Japanese Noh theater. Yeats began writing this cycle in 1916. 100 years later, two modern New York women summon his vision in a studio in the East Village.
