Seaghan is the owner of a performing hall in the city of Cairhien.
While staying in Cairhien, Thom spends time telling stories to patrons in Seaghan's hall. Thom says that Seaghan doesn't cheat him more than he would expect.
Thom complains to Dena that Seaghan has taken on "a pack of louts who call themselves "players"". These "players" walk around pretending to be characters from stories, such as Rogosh Eagle-eye, Blaes of Matuchin, and Gaidal Cain. They hang a scrap of painted canvas behind them, which is supposed to make the audience believe that the players are in Matuchin Hall, or the high passes of the Mountains of Dhoom, or other settings. Thom thinks that Seaghan will have his hall torn down around his ears if he puts the players on to follow one of Thom's performances.
