An Irish Carol

by Matthew J. Keenan
directed by Mark A. Rhea


Keegan’s Own Holiday Tradition: An Original Work

Set in a modern Dublin pub, AN IRISH CAROL is an homage to Dickens’ classic – told as only the Irish can. The play, both comic and touching, follows one evening in the life of David, a wealthy pub owner who has lost touch with his own humanity in the interest of self-protection and material success. But on this Christmas Eve – challenged by a voice from the past, provoked by those in this present, and faced with the reality of a lonely future – David’s life may change forever. An original work by Keegan company member Matthew J. Keenan.

“Trust the Irish to put a bit of grain in the eggnog. AN IRISH CAROL is sweet and cheerfully profane …”  – The Washington Post
