The Steward of Christendom
Cork City, Co. Cork
6 September - 10 September 2022
Gate Theatre presents a revival of The Steward of Christendom by Sebastian Barry to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the handover of Dublin Castle to the Provisional Government of Ireland. Playing at The Everyman, Cork this September 2022.

Set in a county home in Baltinglass in 1932, The Steward of Christendom centres on Thomas Dunne, reliving moments of his career as a senior officer in the Dublin Metropolitan Police (DMP), including the handover of Dublin Castle to Michael Collins in 1922 following the signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty.

This profoundly moving play also features re-imagined memories of his family: his daughters, Annie, Maud and Dolly, and his son, Willie, killed in World War I. These reveries are interspersed by interactions between Dunne and Mrs O’Dea and Smith, two attendants from the home.

This new revival coincides with the 100th anniversary of the handover of Dublin Castle to the Provisional Government of Ireland.
