"I don't hate you," says Rosemary to Anthony. "I just don't like you." In John Patrick Shanley's (Doubt, Moonstruck) Tony Award-nominated Outside Mullingar, these two introverted neighbors have lived in rural Ireland and known each other for years, but their lives intersect sharply when a parent dies and property rights come into question. Ultimately a tenderhearted romantic comedy, Shanley's play about new love in middle age has received rave reviews. Charles Isherwood of The New York Times called Outside Mullingar "Shanley's finest work since Doubt," which won a Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize in 2005, and inspired the 2008 movie starring Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams. See it at the Geffen Playhouse.
