The Seafarer

Feb 4 – Feb 21, 2010

Written by Conor Mcpherson

Directed by Jerome Davis

“The play is about Sharky (Holden Hansen), a basically decent though troubled handyman, and his older brother, Richard (Peter Haig), who has drunk himself blind. They gather on Christmas Eve in their dilapidated house in Dublin to play poker with a couple of friends, the ever-ebullient Ivan (David Dossey) and the shifty Nicky Giblin (Stephen LeTrent). But on this night, Nicky has brought along a man he met in a nearby pub, Mr. Lockhart (Randolph Curtis Rand). Lockhart has come to claim something promised him twenty years before. The play premiered at London’s National Theatre in 2006 and moved to a very successful Broadway run thereafter.”- Broadway World News Desk
