The seafarer is one of those rare and mesmerizing artistic experiences that made me fall in love with theatre all over again. A truly fantastic production will do that to a person (who is so inclined) and those productions can sometimes be far and few between. I had complete and total tunnel vision while watching it, utterly immersed in the moment and simultaneously, with each moment passing, appreciating so completely all the intertwining facets of the production that made it so outstanding; the acting, the writing, the directing, the set and sound design…I still have not been able to shake it two days later, scenes and visions constantly flashing forward in my mind. It is a glorious feeling, not being able to stop thinking about a play, to have enjoyed something so completely that you can’t, or won’t, let go of it right away….

I was initially attracted to this play by its alluding title- I was in the mood for a chuckle and the description of the show as a ‘a crazy collage of song and dance, scenes and stand up – from theatre’s most hilarious shows’ was a major draw factor. It was my first time to Pacific Theatre and was I was pleasantly surprised by its central location. A quirky, intimate space with a small number of friendly people I felt instantly part of an accepting audience.
