Dublin Carol

By Conor McPherson

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£7.99

A magical, compelling play from the author of The Weir.

Present day Dublin. Christmas Eve. Undertaker John Plunkett is sharing memories of funerals over the years and dispensing advice to his young assistant. But the arrival of his daughter Mary – estranged, grown-up – shows him the time has come to face up to his own disastrous past. Otherwise, he will never be able to create some kind of truce with his fear of the future.

Conor McPherson's play Dublin Carol was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre Downstairs, London, in January 2000.

Dublin Carol is also available in the collection Conor McPherson Plays: Two.

Press Quotes

'A theatrical spellbinder'

Daily Telegraph

'McPherson's short play is excellent: tough on love and the causes of love; profoundly sympathetic and damning about the denizens of the drunk tank'
