“pure gold… hugely uplifting… a tour de force… wonderfully expressive and deeply moving”Sunday Business Post

“..alternately funny, lyrical and dark…evocative…a timely piece of work.”Irish Theatre Magazine

Meet Pakie. An orphan, a storyteller, an adventurer, a survivor.
He may not be the sharpest sandwich in the toolbox, but Pakie knows a thing or two about the history of his native town – from the vicious Vikings, to the less-than Christian Brothers.
Pakie’s a laugh a minute… but Pakie’s got secrets. Secrets the God fearing people of Oggle may not be ready to hear.

Starring Peter Gowen (Charlie, Love/Hate, The Butcher Boy), and directed by Donal Gallagher (Love, Peace & Robbery, Bedbound), this is a hilarious and heart-breaking story of small towns and even smaller minds.

“…and poor Walter Rally: got his head chopped off . Okay, he did bring the lung cancer and the famine to Ireland, but he didn’t know that at the time, and he didn’t mean to. He was only trying to impress the queer wan over in London…”
