Ride On – 2012

Ride On

Written by Seamus O’Rourke
Directed by Padraic McIntyre

Five mem­bers of the Drumkar­ren Honda club are sit­ting in an old shed in Co. Cavan ready to embark on a Honda 50 bike ride. It’s rain­ing and the other twenty mem­bers are stuck in Kil­leshan­dra. Their host is Cavan farmer, Vic­tor Maguire, who eats grapefruit for break­fast. This play is about rural com­mu­ni­ties, local news­pa­pers, local radio, local gos­sip and the BOOM that is now a BUST…(But Busts can be nice too). A lot can hap­pen in a shed… in Cavan… on a wet day with a Honda called Hilda…
