I Hear You and Rejoice is a second commission and collaboration between Sligo County Council Arts Service, the Hawk’s Well Theatre and actor Mikel Murfi. It follows a previous commission, The Man In The Woman’s Shoes. Both shows were created for the Bealtaine Festival Sligo, with funding from Sligo County Council, the Hawk’s Well Theatre, HSE West and the Arts Council of Ireland. 

Late in his life, a man called Pat Farnon, a cobbler and all-round contented man, marries the redoubtable Kitsy Rainey who is everything that Pat isn’t. It’s a match made in heaven, in more ways than one …

I Hear You and Rejoice is an account of one of the most unlikely marriages of all time - “the ups, the downs and the beyond the beyonds.”
