“Spellbinding…Brendan Coyle is excellent in this chilling vampire monologue” (Time Out London)

When a jaded Dublin theater critic abandons his ordinary life in pursuit of a beautiful young actress, his desires lead him to strike an irreversible bargain with a band of modern-day vampires. Olivier Award-winner Brendan Coyle (“Mr. Bates” of Downton AbbeyMary Queen of ScotsPaths to Freedom) stars in this intimate thriller by Conor McPherson—“the finest playwright of his generation” (The New York Times) and author of Shining CityThe Weir and The Seafarer. A limited engagement direct from London’s internationally renowned Donmar Warehouse.

For mature audiences.
