The Seafarer @ The Howmet Playhouse

The Seafarer by Conor McPherson
August 10-12, 7:30 pm

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. Sharky may be playing for his very soul. For mature audiences
