PLOT SYNOPSIS The play takes place on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in a home in a town outside of North Dublin. An unhappy Sharky, living with his brother Richard who has recently gone blind, finds himself confronting old friends, old promises and debts, and his future. A card game with lots of booze and lots of bets and curious results fill the evening and the morning of Christmas Day.

  • Richard Harkin – his older brother, recently gone blind, late 50’s/60’s
  • Ivan Curry – old friend of both Richard and Sharky, 50’s
  • Nicky Giblin – a friend of Richard’s, late 40’s/50’s
