Written and performed by Mikel Murfi.
Set in October 1978 – Pope John Paul the First is not long dead, autumn is closing in and Pat Farnon has ‘some business’ to do in town.
The Man In The Woman’s Shoes follows Pat Farnon as he walks to town and back again. It is a beautifully observed piece, utterly simple and Murfi’s “astonishing acting” has been widely praised.
The show is funny, tender and at times downright daft. You might just fall in love with life again.
The show was originally created with Sligo County Council Arts Service and The Hawk’s Well Theatre, as part of the Bealtaine Festival 2012. In 2015 it toured to Manhattan and Philadelphia as well as a sell out, three week run at the Abbey Theatre on the Peacock stage in Dublin. In 2016 it returned to NYC and has just completed a three weeks at the Tricycle Theatre in London
