Youngstown, OH (October 28, 2022): The Youngstown Playhouse has announced auditions for the production of Outside Mullingar. Open auditions will be held on November 13th and 14th from 6-8 pm in the Moyer Room at The Youngstown Playhouse.

Written by John Patrick Shanley, Outside Mullingar is 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.

Seeking: 1 male, 1 female ages late 30’s to early 40’s and 1 male, 1 female ages 65+. Those auditioning should be prepared to read from the script and may be asked to use an Irish accent.

The creative team is led under the direction of Christopher Fidram. Rehearsals will begin in January 2023. Technical rehearsals will occur the week of February 20, and performances will take place February 24, 25, 26, and March 3, 4, and 5.

The Youngstown Playhouse is committed to an inclusive casting process and encourages performers of all ethnicities, gender identities, and abilities to submit. Auditions will take place in The Moyer Room inside The Youngstown Playhouse at 600 Playhouse Lane, Youngstown, Ohio. More information is available at
