“THE ROSSMEISTER General is coming to your gaff! And the lockdown isn’t going to stop me! That’s right, people! I’m taking my act from the stage into your bedroom! Or your living room! You could go totally mad and enjoy me in every single room in the house!”
So says Ross O’Carroll-Kelly - “Ireland’s answer to Homer Simpson’ (Irish Independent ) and “a comic icon to compare with Alan Partridge or Adrian Mole” (Sunday Business Post ) - ahead of the acclaimed show, Postcards From The Ledge, being live streamed this week.
The show, written by Paul Howard and starring Rory Nolan as the irrepressible Ross, will be broadcast live from Mermaid Arts Centre, Bray, at 8pm this Saturday, May 15, and available on demand on Sunday 16 until Sunday May 23.
As Ross has said: “Whether you live in Foxrock or New York, Cork, or Cape Town, Limerick or Sydney, you can have me over for the night. Call it a date. And as usual, there are no strings attached.”
Postcards From The Ledge is set in 2029, when Ireland is in the midst of an economic boom. Ross is about to turn 50 – and life could not be better. His wife, Sorcha, is the Taoiseach, while his sons are the backbone of the Castlerock College Junior Cup team. However, his daughter, Honor, is about to get married and that is when the trouble really begins.
The show is directed by Jimmy Fay, and presented by Landmark Productions as part of a nationwide virtual tour to venues, which includes the Town Hall Theatre Galway. For tickets go to www.tht.ie or www.landmarkproductions.ie
