A Sideways View
Written and Performed by Seamus O’Rourke
Date: Friday, September 27
Venue: The Bluestack Centre and Hostel, Drimarone, Letterbarrow, Donegal
Time: 8.30pm • Cost: €10
A Sideways View is popular Leitrim performer and playwright Seamus O’Rourke’s unique take on Irish life, through his own hugely entertaining stories, poems and recitations. Delivered in his own inimitable style, he will be accompanied on the night by Cavan ballad singer, Shane Carroll.
Seamus O’Rourke has become a household name in recent years through his contributions to RTÉ Radio shows Countrywide and Joe Duffy’s Liveline – especially the monthly Funny Friday editions. His heartfelt appeal, late last year, for the Return of a Hard Border and the traditional lifestyle that it entailed, has enjoyed thousands of views on the RTÉ Player and on all main on-line platforms.
Through his Big Guerilla Productions company, he has toured his own self-penned plays – among them Victor’s Dung, Padraig Potts’ Guide to Walking and From Under The Bed – the length and breadth of the country to great acclaim. Recent acting credits have included The Field and The Kings of Kilburn High Road at the Gaiety Theatre, Dublin and Mark Doherty’s Trad for Livin’ Dred Theatre Company.
Tickets available from The Bluestack Centre and Hostel, Drimarone, Letterbarrow, Donegal.
