When I was a boy, I was afraid of the dark…
What was
And maybe one of the things I thought was there
was vampires.
Conor McPherson’s chilling play receives its Irish premiere in an intimate new production by the Donmar Warehouse.
Brendan Coyle (Downton Abbey, Mary Queen of Scots, Paths to Freedom) returns to the Irish stage for the first time since 2002, directed by Simon Evans (The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, Donmar Warehouse).
Named by The New York Times as ‘the finest playwright of his generation’, this is award-winning Conor McPherson’s second play to have its Irish premiere as part of Dublin Theatre Festival, following The Night Alive in 2015.
Contains strong language.
