The Sand Park is the sometimes hilarious account of how big-hearted Offaly farmer James Anthony Lowery, a man in his mid-fifties, came to terms with the death of his son fifteen years ago and now, more recently, that of his wife Rose. It’s a play about rural Irish life and the way we cope with the inevitable, it’s a play about how life and death and humour and love and sadness all live in the same house together… And then a strange thing happens…
Funny, uplifting and real, The Sand Park is a new play written and performed by Seamus O’Rourke, following on from the success of his sell-out hit comedy Victor’s Dung, which played 95 performances to packed houses around the country.
'Unashamedly rural, unassumingly brilliant.' - The Moth magazine
'We are taken on a roller coaster ride, I cried, I laughed but as with all of O Rourke’s work I left the theatre with a lot to think about.' – Charlie McGettigan
