‘O’Rourke is a national treasure’.. Joe Duffy

 We are delighted to welcome Seamus back to The Viking. Seamus is no stranger to  The Viking stage. He has previously performed  his own Padraig Potts’ Guide To Walking and The Sandpark and Seamus has also appeared in The Mysterious History Of Things written by Jack Harte. 

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.


Bursting with the vivacious wit that is the trademark of Seamus O’Rourke’s masterful play-writing, this show will tear at your heart and cripple you with laughter. Both playwright and actor Seamus not only gives us one hell of a script, he also executes a perfect delivery with superb timing, bringing to life through sweat, spittle and purest passion every exquistley crafted and painfully familiar character to influence the journey of our antihero Padraig potts. This is the tale of a generation lost between the old world ruled by religion and the new world ruled by hearts. Our unsung hero quietly shapes the world whilst accepting all that comes his way. However this is a crossover time. Could there be hope for Padraig yet?

This is a story full of nos­tal­gia, inno­cence, olympic stan­dard sex and Holy Water salad dress­ing… funny and ten­der, per­formance by Sea­mus O’Rourke.
