The funny and moving Irish-language film RÓISE & FRANK is a great film for all age groups, and is a must-see for dog lovers everywhere!

From directors Rachael Moriarty and Peter Murphy, Róise & Frank is set in the picturesque Ring peninsula in Co Waterford.

Róise (Bríd Ní Neachtain) is still in mourning following the sudden death of her husband Frank, is initially annoyed when a stray dog keeps mysteriously showing up at her door. But a series of eerie coincidences soon has Róise convinced that the dog is Frank, reincarnated.

‘Frank Madra’ soon proves a much-needed companion for both Róise and shy, hurling-loving local boy Maidhchi (Ruadhán de Faoite). But as the stray dog wins over the town, Róise’s mean-spirited neighbour Donncha (Lorcan Cranitch) is not so convinced…

Róise & Frank is a delightful Irish-language film for the whole family: a comedy-drama that will draw out smiles, tears and plenty of laughs from anyone who sees it. It has proven a hit at several recent festivals at home and abroad, including winning the critics’ award for Best Ensemble at the Dublin International Film Festival 2022, so don’t miss the chance to experience this in our one-of-a-kind theatre, right here at TSEAC!
