Manhattan Theatre Club's world premiere of Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winner John Patrick Shanley's Outside Mullingar, directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes, is currently in previews and opens Thursday, January 23 at MTC's Samuel J.

Tony winner Brían F. O'Byrne (Frozen, Doubt, Million Dollar Baby) and Emmy winner Debra Messing ("Will & Grace," "Smash," Collected Stories) play Anthony and Rosemary, two introverted Misfits straddling 40. Anthony has spent his entire life on a cattle farm in rural Ireland, a state of affairs that - due to his painful shyness - Suits him well. Rosemary lives right next door, determined to have him, watching the years slip away. With Anthony's father threatening to disinherit him and a land feud simmering between their families, Rosemary has every reason to fear romantic catastrophe. But then, in this very Irish story with a surprising depth of poetic passion, these yearning, eccentric souls fight their way towards solid ground and some kind of happiness. Their journey is heartbreaking, funny as hell, and ultimately deeply moving.
The award-winning team that brought you Doubt - Pulitzer, Oscar, and Tony-winning writer John Patrick Shanley and Tony-winning director Doug Hughes - reunite at MTC for this world-premiere romantic comedy.
