"The Fairies" by Seamus O'Rourke

Backstage Theatre Longford have teamed up with their good friends in Roscommon Arts Centre and Seamus O’Rourke to bring you something really special this St. Patrick's Day.

“The Fairies” is a newly commissioned short by Seamus O’Rourke, telling the true story of two colourful neighbours - high-spirited and thrifty in equal measure. They caused commotion at every turn, and departed in the most mysterious of circumstances. 

“The Fairies” premieres online as the final short in “Tufts of O’Rourke” a three-part series screened on the day that will also include O’Rourke’s previously released musings “Farming” and “The Drawer”.   

A viewing link will be made available on Backstage's Facebook page and on Links to "Farming" and "The Drawer" will be posted on the Facebook page and website at 9am on March 17th.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
