Outside Mullingar at Pacific Theatre

Laura and I enjoyed another rare and precious Pacific Theatre play, Outside Mullingar.  An Irish play set in the farms of the parents of a man and woman who grew up next door to each other, went to school and church together and casually talk of events of their neighbours decades before.  The parents are delightful as they talk of their children. It’s that kind of old world family thing.  Generations and tradition.  So absent in television reality.  A marvellous written by John Patrick Shanly with exquisite directing extraordinary acting.  I felt like I was back at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin.  Leaving the theatre I was truly uplifted by great art done so very well.  Thank you Pacific Theatre.
Now it’s time to order season’s tickets for next year.
