‘irresistible, heartfelt, and entertaining’**** The Arts Review
Arthur Riordan and Seamus O’Rourke (who you may have seen at An Grianán in the excellent The Kings of the Kilburn High Road) star as a pair of aging bachelor brothers in this nostalgic tale of rural life set on a farm in 1970s Leitrim. While the rest of the country is bracing itself for the arrival of Pope John Paul II and his glass Popemobile in 1979, a troubled Pat succumbs to the need for a late night, late-in-life crisis…
Written by Seamus O’Rourke, From Under the Bed is a story full of heartache and humour, as the brothers arrive at a point in their lives, where decisions have to be made about certain things… well the buying of a television for one… and one subject leads to another and the next thing, they’re bringing up all kinds of ‘auld shite’ that could have been left under the bed along with everything else.
‘The poignant undercurrent is salted by some earthy humour, beautifully handled by the performers.’ ****The Irish Mail on Sunday
