After losing yet another job, Sharky has returned home to Dublin to build a new, sober existence with his cantankerous elder brother, Richard, recently blinded in a drunken accident. But it’s Christmas Eve, and the drinks are flowing as old friends convene for an annual game of poker. This year, an immortal stranger from Sharky’s past arrives, raising the stakes to eternal consequence.
Written by Irish Playwright Conor McPherson (The Weir, Shining City), "The Seafarer" premiered at London’s Royal National Theatre in 2006 and was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Play. It premiered on Broadway in December of 2007, where it was nominated for four 2008 Tony Awards, including Best Play. This will be Matthew Broderick’s second production with Irish Repertory Theatre, the first in McPherson’s Shining City in 2016, hailed by The New York Times as “his most assured and affecting stage performance in years.”
