There is much anticipation locally for the premiere of Seamus O’Rourke’s new play ‘For Club and County’ in The Corn Mill Theatre, Carrigallen on Wednesday and Thursday, October 24 and 25.
A Moth Production in association with the GAA Social Initiative and ASAP Programme, this new play written by local genius and hilarious playwright Seamus O’Rourke is expected to raise the roof as we learn about the making of a sporting hero in time for the county final.
GAA is gospel in this part of the country, so the play should hit the funny bone of every GAA player, supporter, or anyone who has ever heard of Championship Fever! The play doesn’t just stop in Carrigallen it will visit Cavan, Roscommon, Longford, Sligo and Fermanagh as well as other venues nationwide over the Winter season.
Now just because Arthur Polanski is the spit of Ritchie Brown, Tanaree’s dual football and hurling star. And just because Arthur Polanski played in goal for the Polish International Under-21 Soccer Team. And just because Ritchie Browne is after doing in his knee while dipping sheep two weeks before the final. And just because Arthur Polanski is not a member of the county, let alone the Tanaree GAA Club. Doesn’t mean Arthur Polanski can’t play in the final … All we need to do is turn him into Ritchie Brown. And we don’t need him to talk English. We just need him to talk GAA.
For Club & County - The making of a Sporting Hero stars Tommy Sharkey, Karina Charles and Shane O’Connor.
The play premieres on Wednesday 24th & Thursday 25th October at 8.30pm. Booking: (049) 4339612 or firstname.lastname@example.org
