“The Steward of Christendom” At the Mark Taper Forum

November 26th-January 5, 2014

“The Steward of Christendom” is set in the early 1930s at an Irish county mental home, where 75-year-old Thomas Dunne has been committed by his daughter. Here, his mind wanders in and out of lucidity as he remembers his childhood, his wife and children, and his career as the head of Dublin’s Metropolitan Police, where he rose through the ranks to the highest position a Catholic could hope to achieve. Dunne was essentially the man with responsibility for the security of Dublin Castle, which was at the very heart of English rule in Ireland. But when Irish independence comes in 1921, followed by a civil war, Dunne’s life, once devoted to keeping order, falls apart, and he can no longer make sense of the world around him.
