This play was brilliant, Conor McPherson out did himself once again. The only problem I had was trying to adjust to American actors trying to pull off an Irish accent. Only a person from Ireland would even notice that the dialects where all over...continued

More Information


The Seafarer is the latest work by Conor McPherson, a Dublin-born writer and director hailed by many as one of Ireland’s most prominent contemporary playwrights. Among his many plays are This Lime Tree Bower, St. Nicholas, The Weir (for which he won an Olivier Award), Dublin Carol and _Shining__ City_.

Two time Elliot Norton Award-winning director Carmel O’Reilly will direct The Seafarer, her first such effort for SpeakEasy Stage. As the Artistic Director of The Súgán Theatre, Ms. O’Reilly introduced Boston audiences to McPherson’s work with her acclaimed production of St. Nicholas in September of 1999.

For The Seafarer, Ms. O’Reilly has rounded up three frequent collaborators, actors Billy Meleady, Ciaran Crawford, and Derry Woodhouse, and paired them with two of Boston’s finest talents: Larry Coen, winner of 2007 Elliott Norton Award (Outstanding Actor), and Bob Colonna, who recently appeared as “Hector” in SpeakEasy’s production of The History Boys.
