Des Keogh, one of Ireland’s foremost actors and entertainers, will tour with his hugely successful and award-winning show The Love Hungry Farmer by John B Keane in the Dean Crowe Theatre, Athlone on Friday April 25.
The Love-Hungry Farmer tells the story of John Bosco McLane, a bachelor of ‘indeterminate’ age and according to his own assessment, ‘past his best’ and evidently still a virgin. McLane’s amorous adventures range from the hilarious to the pitiful.
John B Keane ranks among the great Irish writers. His plays include Sive, The Field, and Big Maggie. The Field became an Oscar nominated film starring Richard Harris.
In 2013 The Love-Hungry Farmer played two sell-out seasons at the Gaiety Theatre, Dublin and made its first appearance at the new Lyric Theatre in Belfast. It comes to the Dean Crowe Theatre on April 25. Tickets are €20-€22 from the Dean Crowe box office on (090 ) 6492129 or online at www.deancrowetheatre.com
