Conor McPherson interview

Irish playwright Conor McPherson talks to Jason Zinoman in The New York Times.
Anyone familiar with Mr. McPherson's career shouldn't be too surprised to discover that he was once an alcoholic, since his darkly comic plays are filled with early-morning hangovers and late-night binges. ([His new play] "Shining City" is unusual in that it includes only a few sips of wine.) His first was called "Rum and Vodka," and his most famous, "The Weir," which ran on Broadway for eight months in 1999, is set in a pub.
