Overview

“Conor McPherson, the Irish dramatist who gave us The Weir and Shining City, has a singular gift for making the ordinary glow with an extra dimension, like a gentle phosphorescence waiting to be coaxed into radiance.” –Ben Brantley, New York Times

“Conor McPherson is one of the true poets of the theatre.”—David Cote, Time Out New York

Includes:

The Night Alive
With inimitable warmth, style, and craft, Conor McPherson’s new play deftly mines the humanity to be found in the most unlikely of situations.

The Birds
A suspenseful, atmospheric adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s enthralling short story.

The Veil
The Veil weaves Ireland’s troubled colonial history into a transfixing story about the search for love, the transcendental, and the circularity of time.

The Dance of Death
A visceral new version of Strindberg’s compelling, bitingly funny battle of wills.
