The Seafarer Photos

The newest work by acclaimed Irish playwright Conor McPherson, author of The Weir and the Tony-nominated Shining City, is a chilling tale that carries the power of an ancient myth. It's Christmas Eve, and Sharky has returned to the family home north of Dublin to look after his irascible, aging brother, Richard, who has recently gone blind. Old drinking buddies Ivan and Nicky show up, hoping to play some cards. But with the arrival of "Mr. Lockhart," a menacing stranger from the distant past, the stakes are raised ever higher. In fact, Sharky may be playing for his very soul. McPherson's production of The Seafarer comes to Broadway after receiving its world premiere at London's National Theatre in 2006, where it earned two Olivier Award nominations, including Best New Play. Ensemble member Jim Norton, who won an Olivier Award for his performance as Richard, reprises his role in the Broadway mounting.
