So I read St Nicholas by Conor McPherson. It's a one man play about an Irish theatre critic who encounters some vampires who change his life. It is a play I enjoyed quite a bit and have decided to memorize to do. It's story telling mostly. Very funny and well written. Like most of Mr. McPherson's play the main character talks about how much he drinks and I can't imagine putting that much alcohol away. Ultimately the play is about longing and despair and redemption. Loss of self and recovery. I will do it one day. I really don't have much more to say about this one except that it is very good and I will read it as many times as possible.
St. Nicholas. Not Santa.
