Port Authority

By Conor McPherson

Paperback £8.99£7.19

EPUB £8.99£7.19

A wry, moving, funny tale of how modern man faces up to the responsibility of love, woven in monologues, from the multi-award winning author of The Weir.

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.

Away from bar-room bravado, three men show us the reality of big dreams and missed chances, of loves lost and trouble found, of the messiness of life and the quirkiness of fate.

Conor McPherson's play Port Authority was first performed in a production by the Gate Theatre, Dublin, at the New Ambassadors Theatre, London, in February 2001.

The production subsequently transferred to the Gate Theatre, Dublin, in April 2001.

Port Authority is also available in the collection Conor McPherson Plays: Two.

Press Quotes

'Totally absorbing, often hilarious and, at times, heart-wrenchingly moving... An act of pure theatre'

Irish Times

'A work by a major writer... His sentences are better, his sentiments more developed and shaded than many Booker Prize-winners. He is terrific.'
