The Steward of Christendom

Brian Dennehy battles the epic tides of change brandishing the double-edged sword of memory.

In the wake of Ireland’s bloody struggle for independence, Thomas Dunne is a casualty of a vanished order. A Roman Catholic and former Dublin police officer still loyal to the crown, he is displaced and alone, save for visits by loved ones from his past in a parade of bittersweet reminiscences.

This profound and poignant story is made unforgettable by an extraordinary performance from one of our greatest living actors. Two-time Tony Award® winner Brian Dennehy (Death of a Salesman, Long Day’s Journey Into Night) renders a hauntingly tender portrayal of a loving father and devoted soldier at the end of his life: raging with delusions of grandeur one moment, humbled and begging for comfort in the next.

The Steward of Christendom illuminates with remarkable grace and compassion an important character in Ireland’s past left out of the history books: a devout and principled man and his spiritual quest for consolation and redemption when everything he loves is taken away.
