The Quare Land

The minor committee are delighted to announce that Moth Productions will return to the Hodson Bay Hotel on Friday15th November to perfrom 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.
