Bursting with vivacious wit that is the trademark of Seamus O'Rourke's masterful play-writing, this show will tear your heart and cripple you with laughter. Both playwright and actor, Seamus not only gives us one hell of a script, he also executes a perfect delivry with superb timing, bringing to life through sweat, spittle and purest passion every exquisitely crafted and painfully familiar character to influence the journey of our antihero Padraig Potts.
This is the tale of a generation lost between the old world ruled by religion and the new world ruled by hearts. Our unsung hero quietly shapes the new world whilst accepting all that comes his way. However this is a crossover time. Could there be hope for Padraig yet?

Carlene Carter has been releasing music for almost four decades. The daughter of June Carter Cash and country star Carl Smith, and stepdaughter of Johnny Cash, she is the physical embodiment of the Carter Family in the 21st century.
Carlene started her career singing with The Carter Family at age 17. With the 1978 release of her self-titled debut album, she established herself on the edgier end of the country music spectrum, having recorded it in England with Graham Parker’s band The Rumour. When Maybelle Carter died later that fall, Chet Flippo wrote in Rolling Stone that she “lived to see her granddaughter Carlene merge Nashville with contemporary rock and roll.”
