Synopsis

THE STORY: May 1822, rural Ireland.

The defrocked Reverend Berkeley arrives at the crumbling former glory of Mount Prospect House to accompany a young woman to England.

Seventeen-year-old Hannah is to be married off to a marquis in order to resolve the debts of her mother’s estate.

However, compelled by the strange voices that haunt his beautiful young charge and a fascination with the psychic current that pervades the house, Berkeley proposes a séance, the consequences of which are catastrophic.

THE VEIL weaves Ireland’s troubled colonial history into a transfixing story about the search for love, the transcendental, and the circularity of time.
