Presented by Loco and Reckless Productions, The Man In The Woman’s Shoes is a one man show written and performed by Mikel Murfi that has garnered rave reviews on both sides of the Atlantic.
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. It is a beautifully observed piece, utterly simple and Murfi’s “astonishing acting” has been widely praised.
‘The Man In The Woman’s Shoes’ is funny, tender and at times downright daft. You might just fall in love with life again.
The show was originally created for the Bealtaine Festival 2012. In 2015 it toured to Manhattan and Philadelphia as well as a sell out, three-week run at the Abbey Theatre on the Peacock stage in Dublin. In 2016 it returned to NYC and also played to full houses over three weeks at the Tricycle Theatre in London.
