KAREN BAIN, assisted by Alice Whitaker, is directing this hilarious and spooky story that begins on Christmas Eve in North Dublin. Mid-life Sharky Harkin, erstwhile fisherman/van driver/chauffeur, finds himself reluctantly hosting old friends at the dingy house he shares with his brother who has recently gone blind. A lot of booze and card playing carry the men into Christmas Day, when Sharky must face the grim promise he made decades ago to one of these old friends. Edward James, Steve Woods, Slab Slabinski, Bill Ham, and Bill Honl play the five hard-drinking fellows in this play scripted by McPherson, winner of the Olivier Award and Tony nominee for Best Play.
