THE LOVE-HUNGRY FARMER
Saturday 13 & Sunday 14 July, 8pm
Direct from sell-out run in Gaiety Theatre
Des Keogh, one of Ireland’s foremost actors, comes to Ballymaloe directly from the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin with his hugely-successful show by John B Keane. John Bosco McLane is a bachelor of indeterminate age who admits he's "past his best" but is bound to pursue amorous adventures, leaving audiences in stitches and tears.
John B Keane ranks among the great Irish writers. His plays include The Field, and Big Maggie and Sive. His ‘Letters’ series of books were a spectacular success, with The Love-Hungry Farmer being particularly outstanding.
