Outside Mullingar

By John Patrick Shanley
Directed by Tracy Brigden
October 11 – November 2, 2014 (Mainstage)

Tony Reilly is getting old. With his wife dead and gone and his own time approaching, he threatens to leave the family’s cattle farm to an American nephew instead of his own son and namesake, Anthony. That is, until neighbor Rosemary steps in with a long-held family secret to change Anthony’s fate—and her own. Set in the Irish countryside, this is the wistful story of Anthony and Rosemary—loners going on 40, eccentric souls, and, perhaps, just right for each other.

THE PLAYWRIGHT

JOHN PATRICK SHANLEY is from the Bronx. He was thrown out of St. Helena’s kindergarten. He was banned from St. Anthony’s hot lunch program for life. He was expelled from Cardinal Spellman High School. He was placed on academic probation by New York University and instructed to appear before a tribunal if he wished to return. When asked why he had been treated in this way by all these institutions, he burst into tears and said he had no idea. Then he went into the United States Marine Corps. He did fine. He’s still doing okay.
