I lost saw Grant O’ Rourke live at The Gilded Balloon in Jockey Wilson Said for Fringe Festival in Edinburgh during the summer of 2017. Great one man show. That fall Season 3 of Outlander aired and we said goodbye to Rupert after the Battle of Culloden. So just what has Grant been up to in the last year or so. A great bit of stage work, and recently, working with The Lyceum to promote youth in theatre. If you haven’t kept up with some of the austerity measures in the UK, many schools and other arts outlets for students have had funding yanked. So just like in the US and other countries, conservatives are hitting the arts.
Grant has been busy with stage in the last year plus, with what looks like some fun roles:
2019, Stage, Orgon, TARTUFFE, Oran Mor, Tony Cownie
So keep an eye out on his Twitter feed for new adventures.
