Fergus Higgins

The grass hasn’t time to grow under Colin Morgan’s feet !!!

The Scavengers is described as a modern day ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ set in the Wild West of Ireland. It appears Colin’s role is Fergus Higgins.  The story is, well … most unusual, and one can even see Colin in its pages, strange as that may seem from the brief introductory description of Bonnie and Clyde.  You can read a more thorough synopsis at the following link.  This is another one to watch with anticipation.  It does appear one rather dark comedy … a favorite genre for Colin … and Colm Meaney as well.  (‘Tis, perhaps, an Irish thing!)
