New edition of Conor McPherson's West End hit to mark its regional premiere at Liverpool Everyman. A boy leaves home for the first time. A man starts a job for which he is not qualified. A pensioner has just been sent a mysterious package...In three overlapping monologues, Port Authority weaves a wry, moving and funny tale of how modern man faces up to the responsibility of love. Liverpool Everyman is staging Port Authority for the first time since its highly praised 2001 premiere in London (in the West End) and Dublin (at the Gate Theatre).
Conor McPherson was born in Dublin, where he still lives. His plays include This Lime Tree Bower and St Nicholas, both for the Bush Theatre, London, and The Weir, Dublin Carol and Shining City, all first staged by the Royal Court Theatre, London.
