Outside Mullingar opens on June 21 at Mad Cow Theatre - John Patrick Shanley's romantic comedy about whether it's ever too late to fall in love. Orlando, FL, June 5, 2019

Outside Mullingar is a heartwarming and hilarious love story by John Patrick Shanley the Pulitzer, Oscar and Tony winning writer best known for the compelling play Doubt and Moonstruck, the wildly popular 1987 film.

Family farms, feuds and fences have separated neighbors Rosemary and Anthony since childhood. 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. Outside Mullingar is a compassionate, delightful work about how it's never too late to take a chance on love.

"Falling in love is a special experience,and Outside Mullingar reminds us it can happen anytime and anywhere." says Mitzi Maxwell, Mad Cow Theatre's executive director. "This wonderful romantic comedy is a valentine to the wonder and weirdness of love, set in the lovely and mysterious world of rural Ireland."

The company of Outside Mullingar includes Whitney Morse (Big River, The Secret Garden) as Rosemary and Patrick Brezyan* (Rapture, Blister, Burn) as Anthony. Joe Reed* (August: Osage County, 12 Angry Men ) appears as Tony and Karel K. Wright* (Top Girls, 1776, Collected Stories) as Aoife.
