Meet The Cast of
OUTSIDE MULLINGAR

By John Patrick Shanley
Directed by Kevin Cochran
July 22 – August 7

Anthony and Rosemary are lovelorn farmers in rural Ireland who haven’t got a clue when it comes to love. These hopeless singletons need to overcome a bitter land feud, familial rivalries and their own romantic fears to find happiness. Full of John Patrick Shanley’s trademark dark humor, this tenderhearted portrait reminds us it’s never too late to take a chance on love.

The New York Times calls Outside Mullingar “Mr. Shanley’s finest work since Doubt.”
