Set in October 1978 (Pope John Paul I is not long dead), The Man in the Woman’s Shoes follows Pat Farnon (Mikel Murfi) as he walks to do "some business" in town and back again. It is a beautifully observed piece; utterly simple, funny, tender and at times downright daft.
In 2015 it toured to New York and Philadelphia as well as a sold out, three week run at the Abbey Theatre on the Peacock stage in Dublin. In 2016 it returned to NYC and ran for three weeks at the Tricycle Theatre in London to standing ovations.
Tender, heartfelt and joyously funny.
