In 2006, Irish playwright Conor McPherson penned his iconic work ‘The Seafarer’.
The brief? To interpret the main character Sharky's concept of ‘hell’ as described in the original poem ‘The Seafarer’, on which the play is based. 

"He knows not who lives most easily on land, how I have spent my winter on the ice-cold sea wretched and anxious, in the paths of exile lacking dear friends, hung round by icicles while hail flew past in showers..." Anonymous. The Seafarer, c.755 AD 

The stripped back nature of the play - one scene, no costume changes - required a simple, minimalist aesthetic that reflected our hero’s aching solitude.
