Turnabout Seafarer

This is the picture a sketch detail of which was featured in the last post: a casting of my favorite play ever, The Seafarer by Conor McPherson, with characters from Ace Attorney, particularly in the context of the game Apollo Justice, Ace Attorney. The two works have many powerful themes in common, with a drinking-too-much, downtrodden yet resilient man playing poker for the highest of stakes, and a friend's power of sight which defeats the devil in the end.

It's a gloriously Catholic Christmas play, and I've seen it twice now, and this last time I actually got to see it at Christmastime, which was great. Happy Epiphany; I hope to post again today about the holiday!
