Item description for Port Authority (Classic Drama) by Conor McPherson...

Like so many of the great Irish authors, McPherson's writing has a beautiful, lyrical quality and the characters he creates are not easily forgotten. Once again, he explores the heart and psyche of the common man in these three interconnected monologues. The young man who is desperate to move out of his parent's house once and for all; the middle-aged man, a borderline alcoholic and serial loser who has landed a job he's not qualified for; and the old man, a sprightly widower who tries to make the most of his mundane retirement home existence. Set against a backdrop of contemporary Dublin-these three different generations are vastly different yet all three share a common concern about lost love-and their own part in losing it. The power of these three interlocking stories grows gradually into one incisive portrait of Dublin life, in a play that is hilarious in its detail and moving in its portrait of ordinary lives.

Conor McPherson was born in 1971 in Dublin. He is best known for The Weir which ran in London's West End for 18 months as well as a lengthy Broadway run. He has won the Laurence Olivier, Critics Circle, Evening Standard, Meyer-Whitworth, Stewart Parker and George Devine awards. Following I Went Down (1998), his second film, Saltwater, which he directed himself, recently opened in London.

Reviews - What do customers think about Port Authority (Classic Drama)?

Monologue Form  Aug 9, 2007
Beautifully written and conceived. McPherson has a great knack for giving his characters distinctive voices. The three in this piece do not interact with one another. They speak in monologues. Though there is a connection between the characters it is barely referenced - more circumstantial than tangible. I would prefer more relationship or direct reference, along the lines of "Faith Healer," where the relationship and personal effect of each character on the other binds the monologues together more.
