The Donmar Warehouse presents St Nicholas, a chilling one-man play by Conor McPherson, directed by Simon Evans and starring Brendan Coyle.  This is the first time McPherson and Coyle have collaborated since The Weir, for which both received Olivier Awards.

The performances will take place at the Donmar’s intimate studio space at 3 Dryden Street from Monday 10 September – Friday 5 October 2018, and from Tuesday 9 October – Sunday 14 October 2018 at the Smock Alley Theatre, as part of Dublin Theatre Festival, which will be the play’s Irish premiere.

Tickets for London performances will be allocated via a ballot, which is open for entries by signing up to the Donmar’s Newsletter or KLAXON email lists at

Conor McPherson wrote The Weir which was performed at the Donmar in 2013 and in the same year he both wrote and directed The Night Alive. Simon Evans directed the Donmar Warehouse revival of The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui in 2017 and The Silence of the Sea for the Donmar’s season at the Trafalgar Studios in 2013.  He also directed Killer Joe which is currently playing at Trafalgar Studios, and in 2018 he brings The Vanishing Man and The Extinction Event to Edinburgh Fringe.
