Syn­op­sis
Indi­ges­tion came about after a chance meet­ing with a fel­la of my age and stature… he had a great sto­ry to tell and although it was a tough life he had led, he remained upbeat and pos­i­tive. I just thought, with the times that are in it, it was an impor­tant sto­ry to get out there. There is hope for all of us, no mat­ter how bleak things might seem.  

The sto­ry revolves around a man who is shipped off to Lon­don when he is 17… goes through bouts of depres­sion, obe­si­ty and anger issues… finds and los­es love, comes back to Ire­land to more mis­for­tune and may­hem and yet there is HOPE and loads of fun in that sto­ry too, there has to be, it’s real and in real­i­ty laugh­ter and tears are nev­er far from each oth­er and that’s even more true when you bring sto­ries to the stage. The reac­tion to the play so far has been great, because I think it is hope­ful and pos­i­tive and real. — Sea­mus O’Rourke
