St NicholasSt. Nicholas

by Conor McPherson, starring Peter Dineen

Sunday 18th November and
Sunday 16th December 2007 at 7.30pm in The Main House

“St. Nicholas” is the funny, chilling and supernatural solo tale of vampires and theatre critics. A jaded theatre critic steps beyond the pale and falls for a beautiful young actress in one of the show's he is reviewing. There follows a story of seduction, entrapment and blood which subsequently finds him caught up in a coven of modern day vampires all living in south London. This revisited production of “St. Nicholas” is the first ever national tour of the play which has thrilled audiences in London, New York and Edinburgh with Peter Dineen reprising his critically acclaimed performance as the Dublin critic.

Peter Dineen is one of the UK's leading Irish actors well known for his television appearances in the hit comedy Father Ted. He is a seasoned McPherson actor appearing in THE WEIR both in London and nationally. He has also worked with Druid Theatre performed works by Martin McDonaugh and recently won critical acclaim for his performance is KRAPPS LAST TAPE at the Mercury Theatre, Colchester. His performance as the jaded Dublin Critic in ST.NICHOLAS received universal critical acclaim.

There is a return visit in December to mark the end of the UK tour of St Nicholas and a special Conor McPherson masterclass is to be held during the day. (More details to follow.)
