"Conor McPherson's The Seafarer is an intriguing and gripping tale of dark humor that depicts the bonds of family and friendship and seamlessly weaves together elements of comedy, drama, and the supernatural into a struggle between good and evil. With a fantastic cast and clean direction, Stage Left Productions is currently presenting an excellent production of this thought-provoking, crowd-pleasing, and emotionally resonating play....Cody Dull's direction and a cast never let the beauty of McPherson's structure and prose down. As Sharky, Garrad Perry beautifully depicts the complex feelings of regret as he is forced to confront his past and the choices that brought him to this fateful evening. ...Likewise, Bobby Havens is simply superb as Richard, the blind older brother of Sharky, infusing the character with a perfect blend of humor and poignancy...a humorous comedy and also an emotional rollercoaster of a play that keeps the audience guessing until the final moments. With stellar performances and direction that perfectly balances the play's darkness and humor, Stage Left's production is exceptional."  - Gil Benbrook, (click here to read the complete review)
