Ashton Entertainment Presents THE SEAFARER at the Aurora Fox, Opening 2/8

The regional premiere of Conor McPherson's Tony Award-winning play "The Seafarer" will open February 8, 2013, for a four-week run at the Aurora Fox Theater.

The play, one of the most frequently produced plays at regional theaters around the country, is about four Irish drinking buddies gathered together on Christmas Eve; one of them has to play poker with the devil for his soul.

"A deep and enthralling fable of despair and redemption," the play also contains "the liveliest, funniest dialogue yet written by Mr. McPherson," according to Ben Brantley of the New York Times.

The play has also been called "an unmistakable masterpiece" (Houston Chronicle), "a timeless classic" (Hollywood Reporter), and "far and away the best Irish play since the glory days of Samuel Beckett" (Chicago Tribune).

Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays from February 8 through March 2, with matinees at 2 p.m. on Sundays February 17 and 24, at the Aurora Fox Theatre, 9900 East Colfax Ave. For reservation or more information, call the Aurora Fox Box Office at 303-739-1970, or go to www.aurorafoxartscenter.org.
