Outside Mullingar

Outside Mullingar

From the Pulitzer, Tony and Oscar Award-Winning author of Doubt and Moonstruck comes a romantic comedy set in rural Ireland. Outside Mullingar is the unlikely story of Anthony and Rosemary, two middle-aged farmers who haven’t got a clue when it comes to love. As Anthony struggles to prove his worth to his father, Rosemary copes with an aging mother and familial grief. With the years slipping away, these eccentric souls will need to overcome a bitter land feud, family rivalries and their own romantic fears to find happiness. Their journey is heartbreaking, funny, and ultimately wonderful. Directed by Karen Allen (Film: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Scrooged; BTG: Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, Moonchildren, Extremities), this tenderhearted story reminds us it’s never too late to take a chance on love.

“Everything about this charming, sweet, and disarming production works together in near perfect harmony”–Marc Savitt, BroadwayWorld

“Karen Allen’s detailed direction coaxes enduring performances”–Fred Sokol, TalkinBroadway”

“Director Karen Allen has taken John Patrick Shanley’s exquisite play and created an evening that is so intoxicating…This is pure theater performed flawlessly”–CB Wismar, The Lakeville Journal

“Aiofe is brilliantly played by Deborah Hedwall with an impeccable sense of comic timing. Jeffrey DeMunn as Tony confronts his own mortality in a conversation with his middle-aged son, Anthony. James McMenamin as Anthony plays his role with strength and beauty and a naturalness that is beautiful to watch. Shannon Marie Sullivan is simply divine.”–Peter Bergman, TheBerkshireEdge

“a performance for the ages”–Barbara Waldinger, BerkshireOnStage

“a beautifully rendered production that gets to the heart of human behavior”–Jarice Hanson, InTheSpotlight

“skillfully shaped and impeccably acted”–Steve Vineberg, CriticsAtLarge
