** 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.
DC Metro Theater Arts Review
“The Keegan Theatre’s production of An Irish Carol is an original take on an old holiday favorite, and an excellent addition to anyone’s list of traditions this time of year.”
Broadway World Review
“Playwright (and Keegan Theatre Company Member) Matthew Keenan adds his version to the litany of adaptations and does so with a delightful spin in An Irish Carol …. [A] delightful way to spend 90 minutes and realize the true meaning of Christmas.”
DC Theatre Scene Review
“It’s a very real cast, grounded by a moody set and lighting that’ll have you wanting to spend your Christmas Eve in Ireland. AN IRISH CAROL is a lovely spin on the traditional Christmas tale surely on its way to becoming a classic in its own right.”
