The Steward of Christendom
Limerick City, Co. Limerick
13 September - 17 September 2022
The Steward of Christendom is a profoundly moving play and features reimagined memories of his family: his daughters, Annie, Maud, and Dolly, and his son, Willie, killed in World War I. Written by Sebastian Barry.

Set in a county home in Baltinglass in 1932, The Steward of Christendom centres on 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.

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.

Tue 13 - Sat 17 Sept at 20:00.

Readers are advised to check with the venue before relying on the details published here.
