Outside Mullingar

Outside Mullingar
May 6 – 28, 2017
John Patrick Shanley
Mark A. Rhea

DC Premiere

Heartbreaking, funny as hell, and ultimately deeply moving. A compassionate and delightful work by John Patrick Shanley (Doubt, Danny and the Deep Blue Sea) that asks the question: is it ever too late to take a chance on love?
