Outside MullingarBy John Patrick Shanley
REGIONAL PREMIERE. From the author of Doubt and Moonstruck comes a delightful gritty comedy set in rural Ireland.
Between fading families, a bitter land feud, and familial rivalries, two misfit neighbors will have to overcome their own fears to find happiness. Full of surprising humor and poetic prose, this tender-hearted portrait reminds us that what we’re looking for is sometimes right in front of us.
From humorous to heartfelt and back again
