Padraig Potts’ Guide to Walking
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Seamus ORourkes hilarious look at growing up in rural Ireland in the 70s and 80s with an umbilical cord wrapped tightly around your neck It follows the life of Padraig Potts, from falling in love with Silvia Lang, a perfect protestant girl to marrying Mary Tague, the local priests housekeeper and eventually to the realisation that the world isnt as big as he first thought. This is a story full of nostalgia, innocence, olympic-standard sex and holy water salad dressing. ORourke is a natural storyteller, balancing humour and pain as he goes.
