ITG: The Seafarer (15-19 Nov 2011)

The Seafarer

The Irish Theatre Group asbl presents Conor McPherson’s darkly comic faustian fable The Seafarer in the Warehouse Theatre on June 20th at 20.00.The production will take place from 15-19 November. 

Christmas Eve finds middle-aged Sharky Harkin trying to stay off the drink while tending to the needs and whims of his overbearing, know-it-all, older brother Richard (who has recently gone blind). Joining them is their hapless friend Nicky who’s taking refuge from an evening of Christmas cheer with Richard, while anticipating the wrath of his wife. Family tensions rise as Sharky finds himself hosting a game of poker which includes his love rival, the irritating Nicky, as well as the mysterious Mr. Lockhart. As alcohol takes hold old wounds are reopened and the mysterious stranger reveals himself to be more than just an affable guest in search of a Christmas card game. 

Due to the phenomenal demand we have completely sold out already. We are also no longer maintaining a waiting list.

To all those who wanted to get a ticket but didn’t we are sorry that we could not accommodate you.  We do hope you will come join us for our next show She Stoops to Conquer by Oliver Goldsmith which will run in March 2012 at Palais des Beaux-Arts Studio Theatre.
