‘Quietly compelling, beautifully acted’

The Independent

Written by Connor McPherson.

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 Conor McPherson’s play we meet Kevin Dermot and Joe, three generations of Dublin men, and explore the possibilities life has offered each of them. Port Authority weaves together a wry, moving and funny tale of how a modern man faces up to the responsibility of love.
