Event description

Description

From Tony Award winner Enda Walsh, the creator of the international hit musical ONCE (8 Tony Awards; 11 Nominations), comes a powerful play of one man's descent into fanaticism. Absurdly funny and dangerously intense, Misterman offers a compassionate look at the stories we tell ourselves, even if we know them to be a lie.

Praise for Misterman:

“A gripping (as in by the throat) monologue of a play…seductive and terrifying” – Ben Brantley, The NY Times

“Misterman is at once a deadly concentration and ambitious expansion of all Enda Walsh's plays to date.” – The Guardian


Directed by Solas Nua's theatre artistic director, Rex Daugherty

Starring Thomas Keegan as the solo performer


About the Play:

Thomas Magill desperately wants to be good. But he isn't.

Enda Walsh’s Misterman, written for a solo performer, is a study of one man’s descent into fanaticism in small-town Ireland. The play's action is set in 'an abandoned depot/dilapidated factory' in Inishfree, where loner Thomas Magill lives out his days, interacting with the people of the town via tape-recordings he has made of their voices or by impersonating them himself. Magill is a fierce evangelist, disgusted by the ungodliness of the townspeople. He knows that jovial Dwain Flynn is a miserable drunk, that Timmy O’Leary enslaves his lovely mother, and that sweet Mrs Cleary is a blasphemous flirt. He is convinced that it’s up to him to save the sinful place, but his deranged mental state leads to dire consequences for him and the town.
