One of the finest ensembles to grace a Broadway stage in years is appearing in Conor McPhersons dark and enthralling new play.

Ben Brantley, New York Times

Closed 20 Mar 2008

The Seafarer is a chilling new play about the sea, Ireland, and the power of myth. It's Christmas Eve and Sharky has returned to Dublin to look after his irascible, aging brother who's recently gone blind. Old drinking buddies Ivan and Nicky are holed up at the house too, hoping to play some cards. But with the arrival of a stranger from the distant past, the stakes are raised ever higher. In fact, Sharky may be playing for his very soul.

Playwright Conor McPherson (The Weir, Shining City) concocts a ghost story that is funny, chilling and profound. A National Theatre production directed by the author.
