Modern Day Christmas Carol


The Amaryllis Theatre Company presents Dublin Carol, a character-driven play by Irish playwright Conor McPherson. Directed by Amaryllis Artistic Director Mimi Kenny Smith, Dublin Carol is a modern alternative to the traditional holiday story.

Featuring an inspiring cast of only three performers, Dublin Carol explores the world of a former alcoholic undertaker named John Plunkett as he shares stories of his past and uncertain future.

Born in Dublin, Ireland, in 1971, McPherson is considered among the best of contemporary Irish playwrights,  presenting a real look into his character’s imperfect lives instead of a sentimental one.

Dublin Carol runs from December 7 through December 19; opening night is on Wednesday, December 8 at 7pm. All tickets are $10 and are available by calling the Amaryllis box office at 215.717.2173 or online at www.amaryllistheatre.org.
