The Lab Theatre provides evenings of reader’s theatre at the Butler Little Theatre. Without a set, props, or costumes, the actors read from scripts and tell the story through the words of the playwright.
Sharky Harkin has returned home at Christmastime to take care of his brother, Richard. Richard is a freewheeling soul and an overbearing alcoholic who has recently gone blind. He lives to drink, and he urges Sharky to drink as well, even though Sharky has promised himself he would remain sober for the holidays. The brothers and two of their friends gather on Christmas Eve for a game of poker, and one of the friends brings a newcomer, the elegantly dressed Mr. Lockhart. Mr. Lockhart, it turns out, is the Devil himself, come to bargain for Sharky’s soul.
