Christmas Dinner on Christmas Day afternoon at Dunavil; if you are alone, lonely or the whole Christmas Day thing is just too much then why not join us at Dunavil for a traditional Christmas Dinner.
Touring since 1st August to packed houses nationwide ‘The Quare Land’ by John McManus, directed by and starring Seamus O’Rourke with Shane Carroll, the tour comes to an end at An Riocht 8pm on Tuesday 10th December.
“The Quare Land represents our fourth GAA Theatre tour and it has been an absolute pleasure working with John and the cast and crew and I promise you this is our best show to date. One thing is for sure, you will see Seamus O’Rourke as you have never seen him before!” says Will Govan of Moth Productions.
Ballyconnell man, John McManus who is currently a participant on the New Playwrights Programme at The Abbey Theatre, says “I went to see For Club and County and was very impressed and arranged a meeting with Will to see if he would be interested in producing The Quare Land. Happily he was, and we were delighted when Seamus agreed to direct and star in the show. You need a very strong actor to play opposite Seamus and so when Shane Carroll agreed to play Rob we were all thrilled”.
Seamus O’Rourke will play ninety year old bachelor farmer Hugh Pugh, a Cavan man who receives a visitor while taking his first bath in four years. The visitor is Rob McNulty, played by Shane Carroll, a property developer under pressure to buy a field to extend his nine-hole golf course in Leitrim. He expects to be able to negotiate a quick deal but since Hugh seldom has any visitors to his lonely farmstead, he is not about to let Rob slip away without a big chat first and then, when it comes to agreeing a price for the field he proves himself to be far from the eejit he makes himself out to be.
The Moth Productions GAA Theatre Tour is produced in association with the GAA Social Initiative and is sponsored by the Cavan Institute.
