Padraig Potts’ Guide to Walking in Edinburgh

July 23, 2015 |  by

Big Gueril­la pro­duc­tions are proud to announce that we will be bring­ing Padraig Potts’ Guide to Walk­ing to the Edin­burgh Fringe Fes­ti­val in August. Which means Sea­mus O’Rourke’s lat­est mas­ter­piece is now on a wee warm up tour — so check out the new dates below. 

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.
