    The Steward of Christendom is a freely imagined portrait of Thomas Dunne, the last superintendent of the Dublin Metropolitan Police.

     

    Considered by some to be a traitor to Ireland after the War for Independence, Dunne has been confined for seven years at the county home. A broken man, both mentally and physically, he reenacts scenes from his past, taking refuge in the memory of his three daughters and a son that died in World War I.

     

    Complex and beautiful, the The New York Times hailed the play: "Magnificent...the cool elegiac eye of James Joyce's The Dead, the bleak absurdity of Beckett's lost primal characters, and the cosmic anger of King Lear.
