About the Show
Outside Mullingar – John Patrick Shanley
From the author of Doubt and Moonstruck comes this charmer of a romantic comedy set in the farmlands of Killucan Westmeath.
Anthony and Rosemary are two introverted misfits straddling 40, both living with an ageing parent.
Anthony Reilly is painfully shy and has spent his entire life on a cattle farm in rural Ireland nursing a broken heart along the way. Rosemary Muldoon living on the farm right next door has loved him since she was 6 and is determined to have him – at all costs!
She has every reason to fear romantic catastrophe but these yearning eccentric souls fight their way towards solid ground and some kind of happiness despite their families’ feuding over an access road. Poetic, uplifting, dark, and funny, Outside Mullingar is a compassionate work about how sometimes the very things we’re looking for happen to be right in front of us the whole time.
