The Seafarer by Conor McPherson

One man sits on the arm of a couch and drinks a bottle of beer while the other sits on the couch and speaks to him. Timothy Strowbridge '20 and Guest Artist Robbie McDermott

It’s Christmas Eve in a small coastal village north of Dublin and Sharky has returned to look after his irascible brother Richard. As Sharky attempts to stay off the bottle during the holidays he contends with old drinking buddies Ivan and Nicky, who are holed up at the house too, hoping to play some cards. With the arrival of a stranger from the distant past, the seemingly innocent game of cards is about to be played for the highest stakes possible.

One man in a suit laughs and holds a bottle of liquor while another looks at him annoyed.
