Port Authority Opens At The Viking Theatre


Actor DICK TOBIN chats to Conor Doyle about his part in the new play ‘Port Authority’ by playwright CONOR McPHERSON that is opening at the Viking Theatre in Clontarf.

In Port Authority we meet Kevin, Dermot and Joe, three generations of Irishmen. Set against the backdrop of contemporary Dublin, each mans story is a beautifully woven tale of failure, loss and the elusiveness of love.

With great wit and compassion, Conor McPherson expertly exposes the heart of common man. Port Authority is a beautifully observed play about the also-rans of life – it is a powerful, funny and moving drama.

Conor McPherson is regarded as one of Ireland’s leading dramatists. His plays have become Major international successes winning Olivier and Tony awards. Other plays include, This Lime Tree Bower,The Weir, The Seafarer , Dublin Carol, Shining City and The Night Alive as well as the groundbreaking Irish Film I Went Down.
