The Quare Land

The minor committee are delighted to announce that Moth Productions will return to the Hodson Bay Hotel this Friday 15th November to perform their new play ‘The Quare Land’. Seamus O’Rourke will play ninety year old bachelor farmer Hugh Pugh, a Cavan man who receives a visitor while taking his first bath in four years. The visitor is Rob McNulty, played by Shane Carroll, a property developer under pressure to buy a field to extend his nine-hole golf course in Leitrim. He expects to be able to negotiate a quick deal but since Hugh seldom has any visitors to his lonely farmstead, he is not about to let Rob slip away without a big chat first and then, when it comes to agreeing a price for the field he proves himself to be far from the eejit he makes himself out to be.

Tickets are €10 and are available from all Minor Board Committee members and Executive members.
