Star of stage and screen, Brian Dennehy (Death of a Salesman, Long Day's Journey Into Night, Cocoon) delivers a stunning performance as Thomas Dunne in this profound and poignant drama. Set in an Irish county mental home circa the early 1930s, 75-year-old Thomas Dunne's mind lapses in and out of lucidity as he ruminates on a string of bittersweet memories. Between thoughts of his youth to thoughts of his adult life, with his wife and children, to memories of his time as the head of Dublin's Metropolitan Police, Dunne struggles to make sense of his life as the world around him falls apart. Already a story of unquestionable power, The Steward of Christendom is shaped into something unforgettable by Dennehy's extraordinary performance. Learn More
