Stage Left Productions, 11340 W. Bell Road, No. 105, announces its next production, “Outside Mullingar,” scheduled to run from Aug. 25 to Sept. 12.
The summary of this romantic comedy/drama by John Patrick Shanley reads: “Anthony and Rosemary are 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 production stars Eric Schoen, Tess Jenkins, Bobby Havens and Deborah Lee Hall.
Tickets for “Outside Mullingar,” directed by Cody Dull, are $28, with reserved seating. Performances are 7 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.
