Preview Show

By the light of a flickering candle, five men play cards. Each has his own reason to take part in this Christmas Eve poker game, but for one, the stakes couldn’t be higher...

The Seafarer tells the tale of James ‘Sharky’ Harkin; erstwhile fisherman/van driver/chauffeur and recovering alcoholic. He has escaped to his family home in Dublin to look after his blind older brother Richard, who rules the chaotic, booze-fuelled roost.

Soon old buddies Ivan and Nicky are round for a festive tipple or ten and bring with them a mysterious stranger. The cards come out, but as the game goes on it becomes clear to Sharky that drink will not be the only demon he has to face tonight.

Magnificently atmospheric, this darkly funny Faustian tale was nominated for Evening Standard, Tony and Olivier Awards for Best Play. It receives its Scottish and Northern Irish premiere in this joint Perth Theatre and Lyric Theatre, Belfast production.
