This month, the award-winning team behind Doubt—Pulitzer Prize, Tony Award and Oscar-winning dramatist John Patrick Shanley and director Doug Hughes—reunite at Manhattan Theatre Club for the world-premiere of Outside Mullingar starring Debra Messing and Bryan F. O’Byrne.A charming romantic comedy about Anthony and Rosemary, neighbors in rural Ireland who are nearing their middle years, Outside Mullingar is by turns poetic, uplifting, dark and funny as hell.
