Lisa and I went to the Abbey theatre on Wednesday. The play was The Seafarer, by Conor McPherson. A very Irish play in many ways, stories of lives ruined by alcohol, gambling, and uncontrolled tempers, an Irish world where men are not good at relationships. But with a modern twist - influenced by American movies and series, such as Reaper, where the Devil walks amongst us, and uses his supernatural powers and nobody bats an eyelid.
If you want some learned opinions on the play, have a look at The View on RTE.
It certainly worked for me. By the end of the play, I was rooting for Sharky, hoping that his cards would be better than the Devil's!
