Commissioned by Sligo Arts Service and the Hawk’s Well Theatre as part of Bealtaine Festival Sligo, ‘The Man in the Woman’s Shoes’ is a one man show developed with older age groups in County Sligo by actor Mikel Murfi.

Over the course of a month, Mikel met group members who shared stories about characters from the town and county who stand out in their memories.

It’s October 1978 and Pat Farnon has ‘some business’ to do in town, but a five-mile walk is no joke when you have to do it in a pair of women’s shoes. Come with Pat on this hilarious journey as he encounters a host of characters with plenty to say.

Mikel Murfi’s theatre work in includes ‘The Playboy of the Western World’, ‘The Tempest’, ‘The Comedy of Errors’. Film work includes ‘The Commitments’, ‘The Butcher Boy’, ‘Ella Enchanted’ and ‘Intermission’.

The performance will take place on May 4 at 8pm.
