Written by Seamus O'Rourke
Playwright and Director Seamus O’Rourke has become well known for tackling serious contemporary social issues through humour and quirky but recognisable rural Irish characters. In some parts of rural Ireland graves are still dug by friends and neighbours of the deceased and not by professional gravediggers. This play is about that ritual… and about things that never get said between men… men who played sport together, men who would die for one another, men who would do anything for the ‘cause’ and yet keep their real thoughts a secret to the grave. O’Rourke himself revisits one of his finest roles as Big Tom O’Donnell and audiences are in for a real treat.
