** KEEGANS BELOVED HOLIDAY TRADITION ** The original cast returns for AN IRISH CAROLs 10th anniversary production! An original work by Keegan company member Matthew J. Keenan, AN IRISH CAROL is an homage to Dickens classic told as only the Irish can. This comic and touching play, set in a modern Dublin pub, follows one evening in the life of David, a wealthy pub owner who has lost touch with his own humanity in the interest of self-protection and material success. But on this Christmas Eve challenged by a voice from the past, provoked by those in the present, and faced with the reality of a lonely future Davids life may change forever.Trust the Irish to put a bit of grain in the eggnog. AN IRISH CAROL is sweet and cheerfully profane The Washington Post
