…an enthralling Christmas fable of redemption…

THE SEAFARER is a chilling 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.

THE SEAFARER tingles with the author’s acute and authentic sense of what is knowable and unknowable in life…THE SEAFARER may just be the pick-me-up play of the season.
