It's Christmas Eve and Sharky has returned to Dublin to look after his irascible, ageing brother who's recently gone blind. Old drinking buddies Ivan and Nicky are holed up at the house too, hoping to play some cards. But with the arrival of a stranger from the distant past, the stakes are raised ever higher. In fact, Sharky may be playing for his very soul ... Explicit language, adult situations.

The Seafarer originally featured Alley Theatre Resident Acting Company member Jeffrey Bean as Ivan Curry, but due to an injury unrelated to the show, Declan Mooney has stepped in for him. The company also features James Black as James "Sharky" Harkin, Chris Hutchison as Nicky Gilbin, John Tyson as Richard Harkin and Todd Waite as Mr. Lockhart.

Returning to the Alley are scenic designer Hugh Landwehr, costume designer Judith Dolan, lighting designer Rui Rita and sound designer Jill BC DuBoff. The dialect coach is Stephen Gabis with Assistant Director Elizabeth Bunch, Fight Director Brian Byrnes and Dramaturg Jacey Little.
