Seamus O’Rourke is returning locally with his new play The Sand Park, which is written and performed by the talented carrigallen man.
The Sand Park is the sometimes hilarious account of how James Anthony Lowery, a man in his mid-fifties, comes to terms with the death of his son fifteen years ago and now more recently, his wife Rose. It’s a play about rural Irish life and the way we cope with the inevitable. It’s a play about the fun of life, the ritual of death and what happens when either one is altered.
The production got its premiere in The Corn Mill Theatre in July 2012 and played to a packed house while it also had a five night run at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann in Cavan. Two of his other plays, Ride On! and For Club and County
have also toured nationwide; both of these were sell out successes.
The production returns to the CornMill Threatre, Carrigallen on February 13, 14 and 15. It moves to The Glens, Manorhamilton on February 19. On March 23 The Sand Park performs in the Abbey Centre, Ballyshannon and in The Dock, Carrick-on-Shannon on April 3.
