MACo brings comedy to town
Middlebury Acting Company continues its 2021 outdoor season with “Outside Mullingar,” a feisty romantic comedy about two Irish outsiders by John Patrick Shanley. Performances are under The Swift House Tent in Middlebury, from Sept. 23-26, at 7:30 p.m. Picnic dinners from The Swift House will be available by calling 24 hours in advance: 802-388-9925.
Irish loner Anthony Reilly has the soul of a poet and a keen imagination, but his painful shyness keeps him from revealing his true self. Rosemary Muldoon is a headstrong beauty with a temper and a biting wit. She lives on the farm 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 toward solid ground and some kind of happiness. Their journey is funny as hell, and ultimately deeply moving.
