Seamus O’Rourke once again brings us a story full of heartache and humour.
A pair of aging, rural, bachelor brothers arrive at a point in their lives, where decisions have to be made about certain things… well the buying of a television for one… and one subject leads to another and the next thing, they’re bringing up all kinds of ‘auld shite’ that could have been left under the bed along with everything else.
Eugene McPartland is woken by his brother Pat in the middle of the night in 1979. Not only does Pat wake him, but he has his good suit on him too… and a light on in the bedroom and another on the landing… and as well as burning up the electric, he now wants to talk…
Seamus O’Rourke continues his crusade of bringing rural Irish stories and characters to the audiences of Ireland. His short stories and monologues are watched all over the world on social media and his plays, dig, DOWN, The Trappe Family, Ride On, STALE MATE and Victor’s Dung have giving us a mixture of fun and sadness over the years, but it is his One-Man shows, The Sand Park, Padraig Potts’ Guide to Walking and INDIGESTION that have brought him to new heights in the theatre world and his last play My Aunt Bee was thundering success.
