Overview

ST NICHOLAS finds an aging jaded theatre critic recounting his obsession with a young actress, and how that obsession leads to a journey into a macabre world of vampires from which he almost can't escape. (1 man.) In THIS LIME TREE BOWER, three young men from a Dublin seaside town tell their overlapping recollections of one fateful night that included a rape, an embarrassing episode at a college lecture, and a robbery done for retribution that ties it all together. (3 men.) In the sobering one-man play RUM AND VODKA, a young alcoholic recounts the events that follow after he loses his job—from the feud with his wife to the bender that might finally help him realize what's important in life. (1 man.) THE GOOD THIEF is another one-man play wherein a ruffian reveals the remorse and regret he feels after a botched job leads to murder, kidnapping, and finally a desperate flee that results in unfortunate casualties and imprisonment. (1 man.)
