Anthony and Rosemary are two introverted misfits. Anthony has spent his life on a cattle farm in rural Ireland, a state of affairs that—due to his painful shyness—suits him well. Rosemary lives right next door, determined to have him, watching the years slip away. With Anthony’s father threatening to disinherit him and a land feud simmering between their families, Rosemary has every reason to fear romantic catastrophe. Their journey is heartbreaking, funny, and ultimately deeply moving. OUTSIDE MULLINGAR is a compassionate, delightful work about how it’s never too late to take a chance on love.

The play is about Eugene and his older brother, Stanley, dealing with their parents’ relationship falling apart as the brothers work together toward becoming comedy writers for the radio, and, eventually, television. They discover that their father, Jack, has been cheating on their mother, Kate.
When Eugene and Stanley find a job where they can write short comedic skits for the radio, they obscurely make fun of their own family. Jack can hear the similarities between the fictional family in the broadcast and their own family, and becomes outraged.
Eventually, Jack leaves Kate. Stanley and Eugene move out when they get the offer for which they’d hoped. Kate remains in the house with her father, Ben until Ben leaves to follow his wife to Miami.
