The Seafarer

By Conor McPherson
Starring Paul Gross
Directed by Peter Pasyk

October 15 – November 10, 2024

It’s Christmas Eve and Sharky has returned to Dublin to look after his irascible, ageing 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.

Canadian star Paul Gross leads an incredible cast in this gripping dark comedy by Tony-nominated playwright, Conor McPherson. The Seafarer celebrates the bonds of camaraderie, the possibility of redemption, and the enduring hope found in second chances.

“A blistering emotional punch… The Seafarer first ambushes you and then haunts you for days afterwards.” – Time Out

“A realistic fantasy, a wide-awake nightmare. The writing is poetic, brutal, athletic, hilarious.” – Sunday Times

“One of [McPherson’s] most succinct and startling, and the funniest to date… what he creates is apparently simple, but daring and memorable.” – Observer
