“..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 (Big Chapel X; What I (Don’t) Know About Autism, Abbey Theatre), this is a hilarious and heart-breaking story of small towns and even smaller minds.
