It is Christmas Eve in Baldoyle, a coastal settlement in North Dublin. Recovering alcoholic Sharky Harkin, erstwhile fisherman/ van driver/
chauffeur, finds himself hosting a card evening with three old friends
at the dingy house that he shares with his older brother, Richard,
who has recently gone blind.
Introduced into this motley crew is the mysterious Mr. Lockhart, a
man of refined, other-worldly appearance. Who is this intruder who
shares more of Sharky's background than is initially evident ?
Over the course of the drunken evening, Mr. Lockhart reveals the
devilish truth about his character and the ghoulish reason he is here.
Succinct, startling and eerie, and the funniest McPherson play to date - Observer (London)
