A Seamus O’Rourke double bill of “Victor’s Dung” and “Sandpark” will be staged tonight (February 26) in the Backstage Theatre, Longford.

While speaking to Mona Considine, General Manager of the theatre, Seamus learned that funding for the Backstage has been cut. Seamus then offered to stage the two plays in order to raise funds for the venue, which he has named as one of his favourite theatres in the country.

A limited number of tickets are still available costing just €18. The evening commences with a wine reception at 8pm, and the show begins at 8:30pm. For more information, or to book your tickets, visit www.backstage.ie or call the Backstage box office on 043 33 47888.
