by John Patrick Shanley,

winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Doubt: A Parable

In this funny, heartbreaking, poetic, and deeply moving play, Outside Mullingar, we join two very Irish families hammering out what a person needs to live fully.

Shanley’s earlier play Doubt won the Pulitzer and a Tony in 2005.

Anthony lives life fenced in, isolated on the farm he runs by himself in rural Ireland.

His life may look like the lives of people we all know. Following expected paths if we want the prize: acceptance. Family and our culture pressuring us to marry and to have work and pastimes they understand.

Anthony is also a very shy, eccentric man.
Strong cultural and religious values pretty much rule out dating.
His duties leave no time to mingle, even with friends.

How would you scale all of those fences?
