THE SEAFARER is a chilling play about the sea, friendship, and the power of myth. It’s Christmas Eve, Dublin, and in the rundown house where Sharky cares for his aging blind brother, old acquaintances gather for a card game. But with the arrival of stranger from the distant past, the stakes are raised ever higher. As the booze flows and the game intensifies, Sharky discovers he is playing for his soul. In this eerie, darkly humorous tale, celebrated playwright Conor McPherson examines how we face the demons of our past as we struggle to find redemption. Directed by guest director Karen Sneed.
