Night Must Fall

Pavilion Theatre, Dun Laoghaire

Nov 16th – 19th

In this gripping psychological thriller, set in 1930s rural England, Dan (Niall McGeorge) has committed one murder and there is little doubt that he will kill again.

A dashing young man, he insinuates himself into the affections of the bitter, self-pitying Mrs. Bramson (Madelyn Chapman) and her servants – the no nonsense cook, Mrs. Terrence (Fiona Darling) and the innocent young maid, Dora Parkoe (Carina Cummins). Only Olivia Grayne (Jilly McDonough), her niece and reluctant companion, remains unconvinced by Dan as she considers the merits of marriage to the pompous, hearty Hubert Laurie (Tom Delahunty).


With the arrival of Inspector Belsize (Michael Stokes) of Scotland Yard to investigate the murder and the sudden interest of the national press in the story, tensions rise in the isolated household. The cast also includes Rosemary O’Loughlin as Nurse Libby and Tony Perrem as the Lord Chief Justice.

Directed by Judith Elmes, Night Must Fall by Emlyn Williams runs nightly at 8pm at Pavilion Theatre, Dun Laoghaire from Wednesday November 16th to Saturday November 19th inclusive.
