Peninsula Players Theatre ends their run of Outside Mullingar on Sept. 6.
Outside Mullingar is set in rural Ireland and features Anthony and Rosemary, 40-ish next-door neighbors and homebodies. Rosemary has been smitten with Anthony since childhood and he is oblivious to the fact. When Anthony’s father threatens to disinherit him, Rosemary steps in to save the farm and her dream of lasting romance.
“Outside Mullingar was on Broadway last year and I got a copy as soon as I could,” said Greg Vinkler, the Players Artistic Director. “When I finished reading the last word, I put it down and knew I wanted to put it into this season. It is poetic, wistful, uplifting and funny.”
Vinkler directs the cast of Players veterans familiar to audiences, including Jay Whittaker, Maggie Kettering, William J. Norris and Peggy Roeder.
O’Meara’s Irish House has been assisting the Players with all things Irish. Patrons can save 20 percent at O’Meara’s Irish House in Fish Creek when they present their ticket stub from Outside Mullingar to the sales staff at time of purchase.
The Peninsula Players perform on Friday and Saturday at 8 pm, and Sunday, Sept. 6 at 4 pm. For tickets or more information, call 920.868.3287 or visit peninsulaplayers.com.
