Youngstown, OH (January 12, 2023): The Youngstown Playhouse will present its first production of the new year, Outside Mullingar, by John Patrick Shanley. Directed by Christopher Fidram, the production will run February 24 – March 5, 2023 in The Moyer Room as part of the Griffith-Adler Series.

Called “a Valentine to the wonder and weirdness of love,” this romantic comedy tells the story of lifelong neighbors Anthony and Rosemary, a couple of introverted, middle-aged misfits. When Anthony’s father threatens to leave his Irish farm to American cousins, Rosemary jumps into the middle of a land feud and gets caught in a web of family eccentricities. Poetic, uplifting and delightfully funny, Outside Mullingar is a celebration of rural life, the indomitable Irish spirit and the belief that love conquers all.
