Performances begin March 30 for the Irish Repertory Theatre production of Conor McPherson’s The Seafarer, starring two-time Tony winner Matthew Broderick. The play, about a Christmas Eve poker game that receives an unexpected guest, premiered in 2006 at London's Royal National Theatre before opening on Broadway the following year.

Ciarán O’Reilly directs a cast completed by Colin McPhillamy as Richard, Michael Mellamphy as Ivan, Andy Murray as Sharky, and Tim Ruddy as Nicky. Broderick plays the role of Lockhart.

The Seafarer will officially open April 18.

Broderick returns to Irish Rep—and a McPherson work—after headlining Shining City in 2016. The How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Brighton Beach Memoirs Tony winner most recently appeared onstage in Evening at the Talk House with the New Group.

The limited engagement of The Seafarer feature sets by Charlie Corcoran, lighting design by Brian Nason, costumes by Martha Halley, and sound design by M. Florian Staab and Ryan Rumery. Original music is by Rumery.

Performances are currently scheduled through May 13.
