The Man in the Woman’s ShoesWritten and performed by Mikel Murfi
Written and performed by Mikel Murfi, this one man show which has been described as a 'love letter to Sligo' has toured to venues nationally and internationally since it was first seen in the Hawk's Well in 2012.
Set in 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 Farnon as he walks to town and back again and is a beautifully observed piece, utterly simple with Murfi’s “astonishing acting” being universally praised.
“Astonishing Acting…” THE NEW YORK TIMES
” “A miniature masterpiece” THE TIMES
“An enchanting show… hilarious…One of the most delightful theatrical experiences I’ve had in a long time” Gay Byrne RTE LYRIC FM
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.
