Outside Mullingar by John Patrick Shanley
"...a valentine to the wonder and weirdness of love." - New York Daily News. Step into the Reilly kitchen. Anthony is making tea. Tony and Aoife are talking about which of them will die first. Rosemary is outside in the rain, smoking and fuming over her apparently hopeless love for Anthony. There will be laughter and tears, alternating in rapid succession in true Irish style.
