Another breathtaking supernatural play from the author of The Weir

It's Christmas Eve and Sharky has returned to Dublin to look after his irascible, ageing brother who's recently gone blind

Old drinking buddies Ivan and Nicky are holed up at the house too, hoping to play some cards

But with the arrival of a stranger from the distant past, the stakes are raised ever higher. In fact, Sharky may be playing for his very soul...

'... a blistering emotional punch... The Seafarer first ambushes you and then haunts you for days afterwards' ~ Time Out

'sparkling and suspenseful... McPherson is a born yarn-spinner'~ Guardian 'McPherson's new play is one of his most succinct and startling, and the funniest to date ... what he creates is apparently simple, but daring and memorable. He sends his characters off on benders, and they bump into the infinite' ~ Observer
