Outside Mullingar, by John Patrick Shanley
Presented by Blacksheep Theatre
Tony Award nominee for Best Play. Anthony and Rosemary have spent their entire lives on their adjoining farms in rural Ireland. Anthony’s father, an ailing widower after a piece of disputed turf, threatens to disinherit his childless son and leave his family farm to American cousins. Rosemary’s mother, a tremulous widow is just trying to keep a leash on her fierce daughter. These two eccentric souls will need to overcome bitter familial rivalries and their own stubborn pride, resolve a generations-old land dispute, and fight their way towards solid ground and some kind of future. Their journey is heartbreaking, funny as hell, and ultimately deeply moving. Written by Pulitzer, Oscar, and Tony winner John Patrick Shanley (Doubt, Moonstruck)
“Shanley’s finest work since DOUBT… a softhearted comedy freckled with dark reflections on the unsatisfactory nature of life and the thorns of love.” —New York Times.
