THE SEAFARER

SHIP AHOY
By David Lefkowitz
Published April 18 2007

  Jim Norton and Conleth Hill

Martin McDonagh and Sir Tom Stoppard aren't the only playwrights from across the pond whose newest works regularly hop over to Broadway. Conor McPherson,whose Shining City and The Weir earned good notices for their stints here, will see his 2006 drama, The Seafarer, reach the Great White Way in Fall 2007.

A drama about two brothers and their friends whose card game is interrupted by a mysterious stranger (ghostly themes of the past tend to recur in McPherson works), The Seafarer played at Britain's Royal National Theatre, Sept. 28, 2006-Jan. 30, 2007, under the direction of its author. The Broadway production will be the result of a recently renewed partnership between the National and Boyett Ostar Productions. Already the teaming has brought Broadway The History Boys, The Pillowman and the current Coram Boy.

Lauding producers Bob Boyett and Bill Haber, National director Nicholas Hytner said in a statement that "they've shown extraordinary commitment in taking a wide variety of plays from the NT repertoire to American audiences." The partnership, begun in 2003, now extends through the summer of 2008.
