Charlie Gorman’s Wake is a feature length film adaptation of a play written by Paul Pender. The play was performed in June 2012 at The Old Dublin in Wallingford, CT where we plan to film a lot of the interiors for the film. Charlie Gorman’s Wake is packed with the irreverent humor, lively dialogue and deep sentiment customary in an Irish Comedy. Set in the sleepy County Kildare village of Ballycarraig, the film tells the story of friendship among the patrons of Gorman’s Bar. Everyday customer Charlie Gorman arrives at the bar each morning when it opens and considers the bar an extension of his home. The patrons are close friends of the owner Ossie Gorman and represent a typical crew of comedic Irish pub characters. They enjoy nothing more than a “good slagging” and relish every opportunity to rag on each other. Despite being a little simple or “harmless”, Charlie is welcomed by the regulars who show a great deal of kindness toward him and consider him one of their own. Charlie and the other inhabitants of Gorman’s Pub are relentlessly funny and always entertaining.
