Seamus O’Rourke is bringing his play ‘Padraig Potts Guide to Walking’ to Fenagh Community Centre on September 27.

This will be a ticket only event, tickets cost €10.

Big Guerilla pro­duc­tions are proud to present Padraig Potts’ Guide to Walk­ing, O’Rourke’s lat­est mas­ter­piece.

The play fol­lows the life of Padraig Potts McK­eir­nan, who has a habit of just eat­ing what­ever is on his plate … metaphor­i­cally that is.

From grow­ing up near the tiny rural village of Drum­namee, County Leitrim in the 70’s and 80’s to falling in love with Sil­via Lang, a per­fect protes­tant girl… to mar­ry­ing Mary Tague, the priests house­keeper, who he never really liked… to get­ting rid of Mary Tague and her mother, who he claims invented vine­gar… and even­tu­ally to the real­i­sa­tion that the world isn’t as big as he first thought.

This is a story full of nos­tal­gia, inno­cence, olympic stan­dard sex and Holy Water salad dress­ing.

It is funny and ten­der, per­formed by Sea­mus O’Rourke and beau­ti­fully directed by Char­lie McGuinness.

The play has performed to sold out venues around the region over the Summer and now Padraig Potts stops off in Fenagh to tell his story. Make sure you don’t miss out on all the laughs.

All details of the play is on www.seamusorourke.com

Tickets can be purchased in the Visitors Centre Fenagh on (071) 9645590.
