Night 4 of the RTE All Ireland Drama Festival 2023

It’s Christmas Eve, and Sharky has returned to Dublin to look after Richard, his irascible and ageing brother, who has recently gone blind. Sharky, an alcoholic, is battling to get through Christmas without a drink. Richard’s drinking buddy Ivan is holed up at the house too. They are joined for a game of poker by Sharky’s old love rival, Nicki, who brings along the mysterious Mr Lockhart. In their alcohol induced world they drink, they fight and they gamble. But, with the arrival of this stranger from the distant past, the stakes are raised even higher, as Sharky may be playing for his very soul.
