THE LOVE HUNGRY FARMER
Des Keogh stars in John B. Keane award-winning show
Des Keogh, one of Ireland’s foremost actors and entertainers, returns with his hugely successful and award-winning show The Love Hungry Farmer by John B. Keane.
The Love Hungry Farmer tells the story of John Bosco McLane, a bachelor of ‘indeterminate’ age and according to his own assessment, ‘past his best’ and evidently still a virgin. McLane’s amorous adventures range from the hilarious to the pitiful.
John B. Keane ranks among one the great Irish writers. His plays include Sive, The Field and Big Maggie. The Field became an Oscar nominated film starring Richard Harris.
The Love-Hungry Farmer has been one of the most popular shows to tour on this island in recent years. It has played played two sell-out seasons at the Gaiety Theatre Dublin, has appeared at the Edinburgh and Adelaide Festivals and has also had a very successful run at the Irish Repertory Theatre in New York.
