When I was a boy, I was afraid of the dark… What was there.
And maybe one of the things I thought was there was vampires.

Conor McPherson’s chilling play is revived in an intimate new production at Donmar Dryden Street. 

Simon Evans, who recently directed The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui at the Donmar, directs Brendan Coyle. Brendan's TV and film credits include Downton Abbey, Mary Queen of Scots and Paths Of Freedom, and he won an Olivier Award for his role in the original production of Conor McPherson's The Weir. Conor's previous plays at the Donmar include a revival of The Weir and The Night Alive.


Tickets availability for St Nicholas will be extremely limited and will be allocated in advance by ballot to make access as fair as possible. 

To enter the ballot, simply sign up to either of our KLAXON or Newsletter emails here. If you have already signed up to either of these emails, or you have a Donmar membership, you have already been entered into the ballot.
Ballot winners will be selected from 31 July onwards. If you are selected, you will be sent an email with a unique link to book a pair of tickets.

We are offering young people aged 25 and under free tickets via our YOUNG+FREE scheme, which is enabled thanks to the generosity of audience donations through Pay It Forward. You can find out more about YOUNG+FREE here.


Following its run at Donmar Dryden Street, St Nicholas will play at the Dublin Theatre Festival.
