Port Authority

In Conor McPherson’s new play Port Authority we meet Kevin, Dermot and Joe, three generations of Dublin men. Their stories explore the possibilities they’ve had in their lives for happiness and love. Their different ages allow the play to both resonate with the wisdom and resignation of experience while exposing the humour of the innocent abroad in all of us.

McPherson’s Port Authority had its world premiere with the Gate Theatre production in the New Ambassador’s Theatre, London, on 22nd February 2001 before coming to the Gate Theatre in Dublin.

What the Critics said

“…his most ambitious and his most accomplished (play)… superbly and subtly acted under the author’s direction by Eanna MacLiam, Stephen Brennan and Jim Norton … totally absorbing, often hilarious and at times, heart-wrenchingly moving… an act of pure theatre, beautifully served by everyone concerned”
