The thing that separates vampires from humans is that they can’t reflect – literally, figuratively or philosophically. Vampires can’t cast a reflection in a mirror. They have no conscience. If they want something, they take it with no remorse, second thoughts, regrets or restraint. A vampire’s only regret is that he or she can no longer feel regret.

St. Nicholas is a play about vampires by Tony award winning Irish playwright Conor McPherson. This compelling one-man show/Irish ghost story will be performed at Ottawa’s Cube Gallery by our own award-winning actor,  John Koensgen who portrays a Dublin theatre critic lusting for power over those weaker than him. He ultimately finds himself in with a group of legendary bloodsuckers keen to oblige him.

St. Nicholas is a wry and ribald tale of a jaded, skirt-chasing Irish theatre critic who falls hopelessly in love with a beautiful young performer from Dublin’s famed Abbey theatre. Following young Helen to London, the critic is drawn into a world of big city vampires – elegant , sophisticated and soulless.

St. Nicholas is an often-hilarious journey of desperate love and agonizing self-discovery. It is a witty assault on modern culture, where greed and self-gratification can often replace reflection and generosity of spirit.
