by Connor McPherson
The Seafarer is one of the most critically acclaimed and endearing plays of modern Irish theatre. This devilishly black comedy blurs the lines between reality and fantasy. Set on Christmas Eve in Baldoyle, a coastal town near Dublin, the play’s characters live dysfunctional lives which at times are laughable, infuriating, heart-rending, hopeful, confusing and mysterious, but always entertaining.
Conor McPherson is the author of seventeen plays for which he has won multiple awards, including The Evening Standard Award, the Critics Circle Award, the New York Drama Critics Award and the Laurence Olivier Award; he is also a multiple Tony nominee for his work.
