        Beyond the Veil

Beyond the Veil

It concerns a Victorian scientist, William Royce, who engages in elaborate "experiments" with a medium under the guise of communicating with a dead lover. a hothouse atmosphere of ethereal, suppressed sexuality develops as Royce explores a world of love in death. the play is loosely based on the life of Sir William Crookes, a famous scientist of the period who did extensive experiments with a psychic called Florence Cooke. (He even took photographs of himself arm-in-arm with Cooke's spirit control.) It has been suggested that Crookes concocted the phenomena so that he could keep the medium under his roof and have an affair with her, under his wife's nose.
