Play Synopsis
Victor’s Dung is set in a farmyard, complete with its very own dung heap, outdoor toilet and rather poor broadband reception. It is the comic tale of Victor Maguire, a crude, vulgar, abrupt, un-PC Cavan farmer who gets a surprise one Friday morning. We are then taken on a whirlwind journey through Victor’s somewhat sad and unconventional life, meeting up with many a strange bucko along the way… Hold on to your hats… and your sweets (because there may be Cavan people in the audience)… this could get messy…

Cast: Seamus O’Rourke, Charlie McGuinness & Tommy Sharkey.
