Misterman by Enda Walsh
  

Synopsis

Misterman by Enda Walsh

Inishfree might seem like a quaint Irish town, but fierce evangelist Thomas Magill knows better. He knows jovial Dwain Flynn is a miserable drunk, that Timmy O'Leary enslaves his lovely mother and that sweet Mrs Cleary is a blasphemous flirt. It is down to Thomas, with God on his shoulder, to save this sinful place. But the townsfolk are not listening, an angel is misbehaving and a barking dog will not be silenced. Just how far will Thomas go in his quest for salvation? Enda Walsh's compelling Irish yarn was revived at the National Theatre, London (starring Cillian Murphy) April 2012.

Reviews

'Enda Walsh, one of the most fiercely individual voices in the theatre today - a seductive and terrifying portrait of a luminous madness that dares you not to look away.'
New York Times
