Down by Seamus O'Rourke

When you close your eyes at end of day, let the darkness come out to play and so the play begins. What goes on in the darker caverns of your mind? Is there law and order? Do you really believe in the things you’re not sure about? Do we need to do the things we do and what if there was a test, what then? Does it matter if we’re not a bendy as we used to be? When you look inside yourself, what do you see? Where are we and more to the point, what the hell are we doing here?
Seamus O'Rourke

Former Leitrim County Footballer Seamus, made his debut with the Corn Mill Theatre in 1989 as Larry in God’s Gentry. His versatility as an actor has seen him play such memorable parts as Barney the Banks in The Communication Cord, Junior in Conversations on a Homecoming and Jim in The Weir. He has directed many plays including A Handful of Stars, Cavalcaders, Dig and Down and of course The Stolen Child for which he received Best Director in the All-Ireland Drama Finals in Athlone in 2005. His writings include recitations, poems and plays. He wrote our last three Festival Plays, Dig, Down and The Trappe Family which all made a big impact on the Festival Circuit and the All-Ireland Finals in 2006, 2007 and 2008 respectively.
