We want our audiences to feel as safe as possible when visiting the Tower Theatre. We understand that not everyone is ready to return to full capacity in our venue so the performance on Sunday 28th November at 3.00 will be a socially-distanced performance. This means we will operate with reduced capacity, spaced seating and our FoH volunteers will continue to wear face coverings regardless of restrictions being lifted. Audience members are asked to wear masks unless they are exempt.

Three generations of Dublin men : Kevin (20) has just moved out of his family home, Dermot (mid/late 30’s) has unexpectedly been given a new job, Joe (70’s) has received a mysterious package. From these seemingly inconsequential events each of the characters tells a story about a memorable episode in his life concerned with love and regret for what could have happened, but didn’t. These intimate confessions are told in a series of interwoven monologues which at various times are funny, serious, deeply moving and above all human.

Conor McPherson is Ireland’s greatest living playwright and Port Authority is the fourth of his plays to be staged by the Tower Theatre following The Weir(2004), Dublin Carol(2009) and Shining City(2010).
