Padraig Potts’ Guide to Walking: A one-man show by Seamus O’Rourke
Seamus O’Rourke brings his highly acclaimed one-man play, Padraig Potts’ Guide to Walking to Clifden Arts Festival this September. Described as one of the highlights at the Edinburgh Fringe 2015, the play is a coming-of-age piece set in Seamus’s home county of Leitrim… a semi-biographical tale of love, lost chances and settling for the wrong woman. A play where a whole community comes alive on stage to give us the facts behind the fact that Padraig Potts never went anywhere… until now, that is…
Seamus O’Rourke is a writer, director and actor, and an independent producer with his own company, Big Guerilla Productions. As a writer, his plays include Ride On (Liven’ Dread 2011) Dig, Down, and The Trappe Family (Corn Mill Theatre), The Halfway House Hotel and Stale Mate (Canal Studio-Backstage Theatre), For Club and County (Moth Productions) Victor’s Dung, My Aunt Bee and From Under the Bed (Big Guerilla Productions). He has two other one-man shows, The Sand Park and Indigestion
(Big Guerilla Productions).
“This is a story full of nostalgia, innocence, olympic standard sex and Holy Water salad dressing… funny and tender, performed by Seamus O’Rourke and beautifully directed by Charlie McGuinness.”
