The City Theatre Austin presents The Seafarer
Acclaimed Irish playwright Conon McPherson takes us to mystical and haunting land of Ireland as The City Theatre Company continues its 12th season with the Austin premiere of The Seafarer.
It’s Christmas Eve, Dublin, and in their rundown childhood home, where Sharky cares for his aging blind brother, old acquaintances gather for a card game. But with the arrival of a stranger from the distant past, the stakes are quickly raised. As the booze flows and the game intensifies, Sharky discovers he is playing for more than what’s on the table and his gamble could be the final one. In this wicked-funny fable of redemption, McPherson examines how we must face the demons and darkness of the past to find where our destiny truly lies.
