Outside Mullingar
Written by John Patrick Shanley
October 13 10:30am

This charmer of a play by John Patrick Shanley, the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Doubt, whisks you away on a delightful journey to the farmlands of Ireland. Outside Mullingar is the story of an unlikely romance between two rural, middle-aged neighbors, Anthony, an introverted farmer and Rosemary, the woman who vows to have him… at all costs! Poetic, uplifting, dark and funny, Shanley lovingly spins a tale infused with a deep yearning for heart, homeland, faith and a sense of belonging.

"Wholly diverting... Mr. Shanley's finest work since Doubt... a softhearted comedy freckled with dark reflections on the nature of life and the thorns of love." New York Times
