About the play:

Outside Mullingar was nominated for the Tony Award for best play, two Drama Desk Awards and two Outer Critics Circle Awards in 2014. The play’s author, John Patrick Shanley, also wrote the play Doubt, which was made into a movie starring Meryl Streep and Phillip Seymour-Hoffman.

Anthony and Rosemary are two introverted misfits straddling 40. 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 as hell, and ultimately deeply moving. Outside Mullingar is a compassionate, delightful work about how it's never too late to take a chance on love.
