We are delighted to welcome the inimitable writer, director and actor Seamus O’Rourke for our very first Rooskey Heritage Festival theater show! Seamus will perform his critically-acclaimed one-man play Padraig Potts’ Guide to Walking.
The play follows the life of Padraig Potts McKeirnan, who has a habit of just eating whatever is on his plate… metaphorically that is… from growing up near the tiny rural village of Drumnamee, County Leitrim in the 70’s and 80’s to falling in love with Silvia Lang, a perfect protestant girl… to marrying Mary Tague, the priests housekeeper, who he never really liked… to getting rid of Mary Tague and her mother, who he claims invented vinegar… and eventually to the realisation that the world isn’t as big as he first thought.
Tickets On Sale Soon…
Following the play, we will re-open the doors for a night of ceol agus craic for all! Trad players will descend upon our venue from all over the country to belt out some tunes and have you all dancing your socks off until the early hours.
