POSTCARDS FROM THE LEDGE
A one-man show starring Rory Nolan as Ross
By Paul Howard
Directed by Jimmy Fay
Ross O’Carroll-Kelly is back and takes his rightful place in the spotlight starring in his very own one-man show.
The year is 2029 and Ireland is in the midst of an economic boom. Ross O’Carroll-Kelly is about to turn 50 – and life could not be better for him. His wife, Sorcha, is the Taoiseach. His triplet boys are the backbone of the Castlerock College Junior Cup team. And he still does alright with the ladies.
As the Managing Director of Hook, Lyon and Sinker estate agents, he spends most of the day with his feet up. But when a client rings and asks someone to put a valuation on 22 Glenageary Glen, a semi-detached house in Sallynoggin, Ross decides to do the job himself. The reason is that he recognizes the address as his childhood home.
As he stands in the doorway of the run-down, council-built house, the sediment of old memories is stirred up. And he takes us on a journey of remembrance, through happy times and sad times, laughter and tears, until he realizes that the job of putting a price on the house – and its treasure of memories – is impossible.
Because it’s priceless.
Postcards from the Ledge is the fourth Ross O’Carroll-Kelly stage play. Ross first took to the stage ten years ago in The Last Days of the Celtic Tiger, followed by Between Foxrock and a Hard Place and more recently Breaking Dad.
