Victor’s Dung — Final Dates!

May 5, 2012 |  by  |  6 Comments

Victor’s Dung is set in a farm yard, com­plete with its very own dung heap, out­door toi­let and rather poor broad­band recep­tion. It is the com­ic tale of Vic­tor Maguire, a crude, vul­gar, abrupt, un-PC Cavan farmer who gets a sur­prise one Fri­day morn­ing. We are then tak­en on whirl­wind jour­ney through Victor’s some­what sad and uncon­ven­tion­al life, meet­ing up with many a strange bucko along the way… Hold on to your hats… and your sweets (because there may be Cavan peo­ple in the audi­ence)… this could get messy…

The Pitch

The Pitch

December 16, 2011 |  by  |  No Comments

Philly lived and played for his team, the jer­sey, the parish, his friends − the very pitch his ene­mies are now try­ing to take from him to turn into a hous­ing estate. Like Philoctetes aban­doned by his com­rades as they go off to fight the Tro­jan War, Philly is tor­ment­ed by painful mem­o­ries and the unjust fate that holds him pris­on­er as he replays the events of that day when his club won the coun­ty cham­pi­onship for the one and only time and he wasn’t allowed to play. Accused of father­ing an ille­git­i­mate child, and now threat­ened with retire­ment to a nurs­ing home, he holds tight to the mem­o­ry of the Her­culean feats of his youth – and to the land on which these dra­mas unfold­ed. For him, the old pitch is sacred ground, and it is here that he will make his last stand.
