Set design is by Kevin Depinet, costume design by Leah Piehl, lighting design by Robert Wierzel, sound design by Cricket S. Myers and projections by Jason H. Thompson. The production stage manager is David S. Franklin.
"The Steward of Christendom" is set in the early 1930s at an Irish county mental home, where 75-year-old Thomas Dunne (Dennehy) 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.
