About this show

One of Ireland's most respected storytellers, Mikel Murfi imagines the characters of a bustling Irish village, capturing their vibrancy through snapshots of its two most disparate residents: the bashful, solitary cobbler and the indomitable football manager. He delivers his living portraits as separate performances in repertory:

I Hear You and Rejoice: From the Gaelic Athletic Association pitch to the chapel floor, Kitsy Rainy always has the final word. By turns moving and hilarious, her friends and neighbors recall the often literal marks Kitsy has left on her community.

The Man in the Woman's Shoes: Just outside of town, Pat Farnon lives on his own, quietly aging in the house where he was reared. Join him as he walks the five miles into a village populated with no-necked water diviners, sporting savants, loudmouths, and preachers.
