AUDITIONS for OUTSIDE MULLINGAR by John Patrick Shanley

Directed by Don LaCasse

Description: From the author of Doubt and Moonstruck comes a romantic comedy set in rural Ireland. Anthony and Rosemary are lovelorn farmers who haven’t got a clue when it comes to love. These hopeless singletons will need to overcome a bitter land feud, familial rivalries and their own romantic fears to find happiness. Full of dark humor and poetic prose, John Patrick Shanley’s tenderhearted portrait reminds us it’s never too late to take a chance on love.  

September 23,24: 7-10 pm – 2019

TONY REILLY – Male. 75. Irish.

About 75 years old, a widower and the father of Anthony Reilly. Tony’s body is breaking down and he knows his death is approaching. Because he believes his son has never been and never will be a farmer in his soul; Tony wants to sell the farm to his American nephew and give Anthony the money to leave the farm. Descriptive words – stubborn, independent, romantic, wily, opinionated.

ANTHONY REILLY – Male. 42. Irish.

About 42 years old, a disillusioned hard-working farmer and in love with Rosemary Muldoon. He takes little joy in farming and appears to have given up on a happy life. Constant brow-beating by his father and the pain of a failed teenage romance have scarred him and made him a man of little self-esteem. Descriptive words – broken, withdrawn, patient, loving, determined.

AOIFE MULDOON – Female. 70. Irish.

About 70 years old, recently a widow and Rosemary’s mother. The play begins shortly after she buried her husband. She is in bad health, short of breath and walks with a cane. She is ravaged with grief and knows she will not live for much longer. Is very concerned with her daughter’s life after her death. Descriptive words – mother, heart-broken, opinionated, good friend to Tony.

ROSEMARY MULDOON – Female. 40. Irish.

About 35 years old, seven years younger than Anthony and in love with him. She haS had an epic grudge and a secret pining for Anthony since he knocked her down when she was only six years old. She is determined but patient and willing to wait years to marry Anthony. Descriptive words – smoker, blunt, bossy, intelligent, beautiful, romantic.

Anthony and Rosemary are “two unmarried, middle-age souls [who] see a longer future ahead, one that looks awfully lonely… Yet Outside Mullingar finds a way to make their fumbling courtship fresh and funny, with more than a little melancholy thrown into the mix.”  Ken Jaworski

Time and Place: The play takes place between 2008 and 2013. The action takes place in various locations on the cattle and sheep farms of Reilly and Muldoon outside of Killucan, County Westmeath about 13.68 kilometers from Mullingar.

The play is presented without an intermission and runs about 90 minutes.

Performance Dates: October 31, November 1,2 | 7,8,9,10 | 14,15,16 – 2019

There are two performances November 16, at 2 pm and 7:30 pm
