Nightmare on Abbey Street is an irreverent encounter between the actor's nightmare and such Irish literary giants as Synge, O'Casey, Sheridan, Behan, Wilde and Beckett.
"A deeply sophisticated, thoroughly funny and richly sustaining play about plays and players. Stembridge's writing simply glows"
"Clever, witty, stylish and warm-hearted fun"
"Effortlessly joyous precision"
