An upcoming London revival of Conor McPherson's early monologue St. Nicholas will play New York City's Ohio Theatre in summer 2002, after runs of Feb. 25-26 and March 4-5 at the Soho Theatre in London. Justin Young directs Peter Dineen in the solo show. Richard Jordan produces.

St Nicholas is a one-man show about a drunken Irish theatre critic who leaves his wife and job to follow an actress from Dublin to London and stumbles across a group of vampires for whom he works, in effect, as a pimp, securing them a supply of new victims.

Young has also directed two other McPherson monologues (Rum and Vodka and The Good Thief) at Soho Theatre.

Peter Dineen is well known for his television work in "Father Ted" and for his extensive work in theatre, including leading roles for the Royal National Theatre, West Yorkshire Playhouse, The Bush and Crucible, Sheffield. He most recently appeared on stage in the Royal Court production of The Weir by Conor McPherson.
