When I was a boy, I was afraid of the dark…
What was there. And maybe one of the things I thought was there was vampires.
When a jaded Dublin theatre 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 Abbey, Mary Queen of Scots, Paths to Freedom) stars in this intimate thriller by Conor McPherson—“the finest playwright of his generation” (The New York Times) and author of Shining City, The Weir and The Seafarer.
Simon Evans, (BBC’sStaged, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui and Looking A Lot Like Christmas for the Donmar Warehouse), directs Brendan Coyle in this intimate production.
