John B. Keane’s LOVE-HUNGRY FARMER 
Des Keogh, one of Ireland’s foremost actors and entertainers, will tour his show The Love-Hungry Farmer to Roscommon Arts Centre on Friday 18th May, 8pm. Tickets are priced at €18/€16 and to celebrate the Bealtaine Festival the Arts Centre is offering a very special Over 50s ticket for just €14.

Based on John B. Keane’s best-selling book: Letters of a Love-Hungry Farmer, and adapted for the stage by Des himself, the show has been one of the most popular on the touring circuit for the last decade and continues to find new audiences. It 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 is the legendary author of such classics as Sive, The Field and Big Maggie.

The Love Hungry Farmer began its life in the Irish Repertory Theatre in New York before touring Ireland extensively. Des Keogh received a Best Actor nomination when he performed the show at the Edinburgh Festival. He subsequently played it at the Adelaide Festival. Des Keogh has a formidable acting CV. Most recently he toured the USA in the Gate Theatre production of Endgame by Samuel Beckett. He will shortly play the title role in King Lear in Kilmallock and he will spend the summer at the Gate in Oscar Wide’s A Woman Of No Importance. He has been a constant presence on both the Abbey and Gate stages. Des has had a long theatrical relationship with the actress Rosaleen Linehan. Their two-person comedy shows have been some of the biggest box-office attractions in Ireland since the seventies. Book your tickets now for The Love Hungry Farmer through Roscommon Arts Centre’s box office at 090 6625824 or online at www.roscommonartscentre.ie
