Seanachaí’s The Seafarer

SEANACHAÍ THEATRE COMPANY presents
A game of cards 20 years in the waiting!
ALL AGES EVENT!
The people’s stories were at the very core of ancient Irish culture. It was the duty of the Seanachaí (“Shawn-uh-kee”) to keep these stories alive. The mission of Seanachaí Theatre Company is to return theatre to this origin – by creating compelling productions and programs that focus the energy of artists towards the common goal of exceptional storytelling.
Another eerie and darkly humorous masterpiece from Conor McPherson. On Christmas Eve, a pair of brothers are set to enjoy the holidays in true Dublin spirit with cards, booze and friends — until a stranger from long ago arrives to collect a debt.
JUSTIN SAYS: Seanachaí Theatre Company is Chicago’s resident Irish theater company that consistently produces the smartest, funniest and emotionally resonating scripts from across the pond by way of the finest actors you’ll see on stage in the Midwest. THE SEAFARER is certainly no exception. Set in a grimy bachelor pad in Dublin on Christmas Day, two brash and feuding brothers welcome their compatriots over for a friendly game of cards where it is soon revealed that there is far more at stake than just money. Conor McPherson is an utterly brilliant playwright, and Seanachaí is just the company to bring his characters to life. (Their previous productions of McPherson’s “The Weir” and “St. Nicholas” were magnificent to say the least.) Come and see why this show has been given rave reviews across the board.
