JPW King is an Englishman holed up in his Dublin office. He offers his services as a practitioner of "Dynamatology", an organisation that promises spiritual healing and the ultimate in self-realisation to the wounded soul.

But JPW himself is wounded, what with his dependence on vodka, the demands of Mona, his mistress, and the unobtainable love of his life, Helen, and the big one: Christ: how is he going to get through today? There is a knock on his door: he has a client, an Irishman who wants to sing like Gigli...

The Abbey Theatre will be hosting a series of special events and initiatives during the Tom Murphy season. These will include a public interview with Tom Murphy conducted by Michael Billington, and a concert of music drawn from the plays of Tom Murphy.

There will be pre-show talks and panel discussions each night except Mondays. All events to be held in the Abbey and Peacock theatres are free of charge.

"A complex and fascinating play bearing the true stigmata of talent"
