WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Austin premiere play about luck, the past, and the power of friendship. It's Christmas Eve, Dublin, and in their run-down childhood home, where Sharky cares for his aging blind brother, old acquaintances gather for a card game. But with the arrival of a stranger from the distant past, the stakes are raised. As the booze flows and the game intensifies, Sharky discovers he is playing for more than what's on the table and his gamble could be the final one. In this wicked-funny fable of redemption, celebrated playwright Conor McPherson examines how we must face the demons and darkness of the past to find where our destiny truly lies.
