Sierra Stages and the Miners Foundry will present Outside Mullingar on Wednesday, February 12 at 7:30pm. Written by John Patrick Shanley and directed by Sands Hall, Outside Mullingar is the next installment of Theater By the Book, a series of informal play readings for the community.
Anthony has spent his entire life on a cattle farm in rural Ireland, a state of affairs that—due to his painful shyness—suits him well. Rosemary lives right next door, determined to have him, watching the years slip away. With Anthony’s father threatening to disinherit him and a land feud simmering between their families, Rosemary has every reason to fear romantic catastrophe. But then, in this very Irish story with a surprising depth of poetic passion, these yearning, eccentric souls fight their way towards solid ground and some kind of happiness. Their journey is heartbreaking, funny, and ultimately deeply moving. Outside Mullingar is a compassionate, delightful work about how it’s never too late to take a chance on love.
Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the performance begins at 7:30 p.m.
Admission is free with a $10 suggested donation
