Performance Workshop Theatre presents the return of the extraordinary one-man play, St Nicholas, by the celebrated Irish playwright, Conor McPherson. A modern day gothic tale, St. Nicholas is the chillingly funny and macabre story of an Irish theatre critic at a crisis in his life, who chases a beautiful young actress to London, then falls into a world of lust, dark secrets, vampires, and mystery.

Award-winning actor, Marc Horwitz, stars in a reprise of his acclaimed solo performance in Performance Workshop Theatre's 2005 production of this brilliant one actor tour-de-force. Marlyn Robinson directs the production.

Conor McPherson, best known for his international hit The Weir, uses the tools of traditional Irish storytelling, mixing reality and unreality to illuminate emotional truths. The Weir won the Olivier Award for London’s best play. St. Nicholas followed, originally produced at the Bush Theatre in London in 1997 and then moved to New York in 1998 where it was one of the hits of the season.

Performance Workshop Theatre is participating during October in Free Fall Baltimore with these performances.
