Outside Mullingar

By John Patrick Shanley
Directed by Heather Pattengale

A poetic romance set in rural Ireland about neighbors stuck in the trenches of a land feud. Anthony and Rosemary grew up on adjacent farms and are now nearing mid-life crises. He’s an introverted farmer, she’s a woman who doesn’t mince words. When Anthony’s father threatens to disinherit him, Rosemary steps into the swirling mess of long-standing family eccentricities to take her shot at love. On the brink of catastrophe, they fight back despair and stubborn follies to unearth the magic of finding their hearts’ true home.

From the author of Moonstruck, Doubt, & Joe Vs. The Volcano.
