ABOUT FROM UNDER THE BED

Seamus O’Rourke teams up with director Bairbre Ni Chaoimh and actor Arthur Riordan in this beautiful glance at rural Irish life in 1979. Two aging, bachelor brothers arrive at a point in their lives, where decisions have to be made about certain things… It’s funny and pathetic and heart wrenchingly sad.

               
                            BY SEAMUS O'ROURKE


Performed by Seamus O’Rourke & Arthur Riordan  

Directed by Bairbre Ní Chaoimh             

Written by Seamus O’Rourke.. who brought us Padraig Potts’ Guide To Walking.


Seamus O’Rourke once again brings us a story full of heartache and humour, as a pair of aging, rural, bachelor brothers arrive at a point in their lives, where decisions have to be made about certain things… well the buying of a television for one… and one subject leads to another and the next thing, they’re bringing up all kinds of ‘auld shite’ that could have been left under the bed along with everything else.

Eugene McPartland is woken by his brother Pat in the middle of the night in 1979. Not only does Pat wake him, but he has his good suit on him too… and a light on in the bedroom and another on the landing… and as well as burning up the electric, he now wants to talk…
