The Determinator


  • 14 - 15 Nov // 8:15pm
  • Studio Theatre
  • €18 & €16 concession

Herbie Hoctor has just been trying to keep his head above water like any other halfway civilized human being but it’s difficult to keep going when your landlord has given you notice to quit; when your nemesis and neighbour is threatening you with the Guards; when you’ve been fired from your job for refusing to sing the Happy Birthday song; when there’s a dead body lying under your bedroom floor and – worst of all – when you’ve just discovered that your ex-girlfriend, the love of your life, your soulmate, your sweet little heart’s desire, your pretty little nasturtium… is getting married… tomorrow… in New York City beyond in America country…

A hilarious story of one young man’s epic trek from Dowra, Co. Leitrim, to New York City in a last ditch attempt to win back his ex-girlfriend’s heart…

No money, no passport, no visa: no problem…..


Original production supported by Town Hall Cavan.
“A whole village brought to life in brilliantly daft comedy!” Anglo Celt
“McGuinness brought inexhaustible energy, physicality and a whole wardrobe of accents that ranged from the pure culchie to the frankly curious, and even a smidgeen of Schwarzenegger.” Damian Carney, Anglo Celt
