Upcoming Drama Productions

Drama - 'The Man in the Woman's Shoes'- written & performed by Mikel Murfi

 

Thursday 19th July 8pm Sharp
Tickets: €18/ €16( No admittance after 8pm)

The Man in the Woman's Shoes

Loco and Reckless Productions Present a one man show written and performed by Mikel Murfi.  

Set in October 1978 - Pope John Paul the First is not long dead, autumn is closing in and Pat Farnon has ‘some business’ to do in town.

The Man In The Woman’s Shoes follows Pat Farnon as he walks to town and back again. It is a beautifully observed piece, utterly simple and Murfi’s “astonishing acting” has been widely praised.

The Man In The Woman’s Shoes is funny, tender and at times downright daft. You might just fall in love with life again.

The show was originally created with Sligo County Council Arts Service and The Hawk’s Well Theatre, Sligo as part of the Bealtaine Festival 2012.  In 2015 it toured to Manhattan and Philadelphia as well as a sell out, three week run at the Abbey Theatre on the Peacock stage in Dublin. In 2016 it returned to NYC and also played to full houses over three weeks at the Tricycle Theatre in London.

Harling, based on his experience with his sister's death. The play is a comedy-drama about the bond among a group of Southern women in northwest Louisiana
