Carlow Little Theatre Society are delighted to be returning to the stage of the George Bernard Shaw theatre this coming November, with their production of Sebastian Barry's 'The Steward Of Christendom', a profoundly moving story of family, love and loss.
Set in 1932 in the Baltinglass county home, Thomas Dunne, the last Chief Superintendent of the Dublin Metropolitan Police, looks back on his life as he tries to keep his ghosts at bay with reimagined memories of his daughters, Annie, Maud, and Dolly, and his son, Willie, interspersed by interactions between Dunne and Mrs O’Dea and Smith, two attendants from the home. It is a tale of family running concurrently with Irish history, spanning British colonial rule through to the early days of Irish independence.
"I’m delighted and proud that the distinguished Carlow Little Theatre are tackling The Steward, and bringing it home to Carlow. I do wish them every success and happiness doing the play." 𝗦𝗲𝗯𝗮𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗮𝗻 𝗕𝗮𝗿𝗿𝘆, 𝗝𝘂𝗻𝗲 𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟯
'The Steward Of Christendom' will be Directed by Michael Somers and is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
