OUTSIDE MULLINGAR by John Patrick Shanley

Direction: Clifford Dean

 

American playwright John Patrick Shanley drew upon his Irish roots to write this dramatic romantic comedy. Set in rural Ireland, it involves Anthony and Rosemary who have lived on neighboring farms all their lives. She has been secretly in love with him since they were kids. He, however, has remained either blind to her feelings or too shy to respond to them. Now nearing middle age, they are thrown into a crisis when Anthony’s father threatens to leave the farm to a relative. How they cope with their relationship in the new situation is heartbreaking, but very funny and deeply moving. Will they take a chance on love?  

“Mr. Shanley’s finest work since DOUBT.” (The New York Times)

 

Der amerikanische Schriftsteller John Patrick Shanley ließ sich von seinen irischen Wurzeln inspirieren, um diese romantisch-dramatische Komödie zu schreiben. Es spielt im ländlichen Irland, erzählt von Anthony und Rosemary, die ihr ganzes Leben in benachbarten Bauernhöfen verbracht haben. Sie war schon seit ihrer Kindheit heimlich in ihn verliebt. Er war entweder zu blind um es zu begreifen, oder einfach nur zu schüchtern um ihre Gefühle zu erwidern. Nun mittleren Alters werden sie durch Anthony’s Vaters drohender Entscheidung den Hof an einen Neffen statt an ihn zu vererben, auf eine harte Probe gestellt. Auf herzzerreissende Weise und unfreiwillig komisch bewältigen sie die Situation tiefst berührend. Können sie ihrer Liebe eine Chance geben?
