Told with a quintessential Irish charm, An Irish Carol pays homage to the classic holiday tale A Christmas Carol. Written by Dublin native and Keegan company member Matthew J. Keenan, the play follows one evening in the life of David, a wealthy Dublin pub owner who's lost touch with his own humanity in the interest of self-protection and material success. But this Christmas Eve, David's life may change forever when he's challenged by a voice from the past, provoked by those in the present and faced with the reality of a lonely future. The show, which has played to sold-out audiences for the past several years, is a modern fable told with all the biting humor and incisive candor of its Irish playwright. Experience this fresh take on a holiday tradition at the Keegan Theatre in Washington, D.C.
Running time is one hour and 20 minutes, with no intermission.
