Our Incantata Review

The idea itself — making a 45-stanza poem about the poet’s lost love into a drama — is ambitious at best. The alchemy required to render Paul Muldoon’s elegiac poem Incantata into a theatre piece, and then hang it on the albeit broad shoulders of a single actor, Stanley Townsend, might be a bridge too far. And to tell you the truth, I’m not sure it isn’t.
