‘The Man in the Woman’s Shoes’ and ‘I Hear You and Rejoice’ coming up at The Hawk’s Well
The Hawk's Well Theatre is delighted to welcome back Mikel Murfi this Spring with two productions; The Man in the Woman’s Shoes and its companion piece, I Hear You and Rejoice, were commissioned by the Hawk’s Well Theatre and Sligo County Council Arts Service.
The Man In The Woman’s Shoes follows Pat Farnon as he walks the five miles from his white cottage to town and back again, meeting multiple interesting characters along the way. This one-man play has been hugely acclaimed nationally and internationally by audiences and critics alike, garnering many accolades along the way, including the Zebby Award (Irish Writers Guild) for Best Theatre Script 2013, the Stewart Parker BBC Radio Drama Award 2013 and a nomination for Best New Play in The Irish Times Theatre Awards 2014.
I Hear You and Rejoice is the much-anticipated companion piece to The Man in the Woman’s Shoes, continueing the story of Pat - cobbler and all-round contented man, as he marries the redoubtable Kitsy Rainey who is everything that Pat isn't. Written and performed by Mikel Murfi, I Hear You and Rejoice is a tender and joy filled account of a most unlikely marriage.
Early booking is advisable for both of these shows.
