Four Irish drinking buddies gather together on Christmas Eve; one of them has to play poker with the devil for his soul.

“A deep and enthralling fable of despair and redemption,” the play also contains “the liveliest, funniest dialogue yet written by Mr. McPherson,” according to Ben Brantley of the New York Times.

The play has also been called “an unmistakable masterpiece” (Houston Chronicle), “a timeless classic” (Hollywood Reporter), and “far and away the best Irish play since the glory days of Samuel Beckett” (Chicago Tribune).
