Victor’s Dung – West Cork Fit-Up Theatre Festival
A Cavan farmer confront life’s big questions in Victor’s Dung – a play performed in Glengarriff as part of the West Cork Fit-Up Theatre Festival on 15th July.
The one-off performance presents Seamus O’Rourke’s mad, galloping tale of cantankerous Cavan farmer, Victor Maguire, and the ghosts of his past, present and maybe future.
It’s full of philosophy for beginners and it’s smeared in sadness, but there’s lots of accidental joy along the way too. If only we could win a prize!
Buy tickets at the door of Glengarriff Community Hall (just outside the village on the Kenmare Road).
