Conor McPherson's eerie dramas, including The Weir and The Seafarer, catalog the uncanny ghosts that still haunt the cities and countryside of modern-day Ireland. So when he described his 2013 work, The Night Alive, to the L.A. Times as a grown-up nativity play, theatergoers took notice. "I see it in those very simple terms," he said, "with all the motifs about giving shelter to someone who needs shelter and featuring three wise men, none of them very wise here." To say the least: Tommy's a fuck-up in his fifties, subsisting with his slow friend Doc on a string of odd jobs, permanently crash-landed in a squalid room in his uncle Maurice's house in Dublin. Tommy has befriended Aimee, a sex worker on the run from an abusive boyfriend. What can come from such a union, in such a humble place? With McPherson, expect the unexpected. Susannah Hough directs a quintet in this Honest Pint Theatre production, including company founder David Henderson, Samantha Corey, and John Allore. —Byron Woods
