Affable alcoholics explore human heart - Mennonite Brethren Herald
The Seafarer is a dark comedy by Irish playwright, Conor McPherson. On the surface, it is the tale of two brothers and three friends gathered over the holidays for a friendly game of poker. At its depths, it is a brilliant exploration of the human condition and family dynamics within the context of an underemployed blue-collar family in a poor fishing village in Ireland.
