Conor McPherson's St Nicholas is a monologue play written while McPherson was attached to the Bush Theatre, London, under the Pearson Television Theatre Writers’ Scheme. It was first performed at the Bush Theatre on 19 February 1997.
A cynical and jaded theatre critic in his late fifties falls for a beautiful young actress. In pursuing her, he meets a group of modern-day vampires who offer him eternal life – his part of the bargain is to feed their bloodlust.
The Bush Theatre premiere was performed by veteran stage and film actor Brian Cox in a production directed by Conor McPherson.
