  ‘Fiercely serious and bruisingly hilarious’ New York Times

DES KEOGH, one of Ireland’s foremost actors and entertainers, will bring his with his hugely successful and award winning show THE LOVE HUNGRY-FARMER by JOHN B. KEANE to the Dolmen Theatre for the first time, for one week beginning on Mon 26th February.

  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.
