Port Authority

Decadent Theatre presents

by Conor McPherson


Conor McPherson is regarded as one of Ireland’s leading dramatists. His plays have become major international successes winning Olivier and Tony awards. Previous plays include, The Weir, The Seafarer and Shining City as well as the groundbreaking Irish film I Went Down. In Port Authority we meet Kevin, Dermot and Joe, three generations of Irishmen. Set against the backdrop of contemporary Dublin, each man’s story is a beautifully woven tale of failure, loss and the elusiveness of love. With great wit and compassion Conor McPherson expertly exposes the heart of common man. Port Authority is a beautifully observed play about the also-rans of life, it is a powerful, funny and moving drama.
