The Man In The Woman's Shoes
Written and performed by Mikel Murfi, The Man In The Woman’s Shoes is an acclaimed tour de force performance by one of Ireland’s leading actors.
It’s 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 as he walks the five miles from his white cottage to town and back again. He meets unforgettable characters along the way, including water diviner Huby Patterson, GAA enthusiast extraordinaire Kitsy Rainey, big voiced Casimir Marshall, an array of farmers all named Gilmartin and Kemp, a man whose idea of a good time is to direct traffic wherever he may find it. Pat may be an aging man but he has a boundless enthusiasm for life. Hilariously funny, tender and at times downright daft, The Man in The woman’s Shoes, will leave you uplifted and in love with life again.
