Seamus O’Rourke presents his acclaimed new one-man play The Sand Park at the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar on Thursday, January 24 at 8pm.
The Sand Park is the some times hilarious account of how big-hearted Offaly farmer James Anthony Lowery, a man in his mid-fifties, came to terms with the death of his son 15 years ago and now, more recently, that of his wife Rose. It’s a play about rural Irish life and the way we cope with the inevitable, it’s a play about how life and death and humour and love and sadness all live in the same house together… And then a strange thing happens… Funny, uplifting and real, The Sand Park is a new play written and performed by Seamus O’Rourke, following on from the success of his sell-out hit comedy Victor’s Dung, which played 95 performances to packed houses around the country. The Sand Park has been getting standing ovations wherever it’s been performed. Come and see why.
