Padraig Potts’ Guide to Walking

February 29, 2016 |  by

Seamus O’Rourke is back. Big Guerilla productions are proud to present Padraig Potts’ Guide to Walking, O’Rourke’s latest masterpiece is now on a nationwide tour – so check out the new dates!

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.

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