Director Matthew Xia
"THERE’S NOTHING WORSE THAN DECORATIONS AFTER CHRISTMAS. THAT’S THE WAY I SOMETIMES USED TO FEEL PUTTING MY CLOTHES ON IN THE MORNING."
Dublin, Christmas Eve. John, an alcoholic undertaker, is confronted by the ghosts of his past. Can he salvage something from the life he himself wrecked?
Conor McPherson is not only one of the most acclaimed playwrights working today, he is one the most compassionate. McPherson’s characters are people we can believe in and relate to. In Dublin Carol, he creates a deeply moving account of a man struggling to face up to his past, present and future.
This new production of this modern masterpiece by Matthew Xia, one of the UK’s brightest directing talents, promises a highly emotional experience in the intimacy of the Sherman Studio.
