Award-winning Irish playwright/performer Mikel Murfi’s one-man show, The Man in the Woman's Shoes will be travelling to The Tricycle Theatre London.

Beidh seó aonair de chuid an drámadóra/taibheora, a bhfuil gradaim buaite aige, Mikel Murfi, The Man in the Woman's Shoes ag taisteal chuig an Tricycle Theatre, Londain.

The man in the woman's shoes follows a few hours in the life of the full-time cobbler, occasional farmer and all-around stand up guy Pat Farnin as he walks five miles from his white cottage to his small Irish town and back again.

He meets unforgettable characters along the way: water diviner Huby Patterson; GAA enthusiast extraordinaire Kitsy Rainey; big voiced Casimir Marshall; an array of farmers all named Gilmartin and Kemp; and a man whose idea of a good time is to direct traffic wherever he may find it. Pat may be an ageing man, but he has boundless enthusiasm for life.

Writer Mikel Murfi is from Sligo. He trained at Ecole Jacques Lecoq, Paris and has worked with the Abbey and Peacock Theatres, the Blue Raincoat Theatre Company, and Druid Theatre Company among many others.

Leantar an gréasaí lánaimseartha, feirmeoir páirtaimseartha agus fear uasal, Pat Farnin, ar feadh cúpla uair an chloig in The Man in the Woman’s Shoes fad is a siúlann sé cúig mhíle óna theachín bán go dtí an baile beag in Éirinn agus ar ais arís.

Buaileann sé le carachtair iontacha ar an mbealach, an t-aimsitheoir uisce Huby Patterson, an saineolaí CLG Kitsy Rainey, Casimir Marshall lena ghuth mór, réimse feirmeoirí a bhfuil Gilmartin nó Kemp mar ainm orthu ar fad, fear ar breá leis a bheith ag stiúradh tráchta pé áit a fheiceann sé é. Cé go bhfuil Pat ag dul in aois, tá cíocras chun na beatha aige go fóill.

Is as Sligeach don scríbhneoir Mikel Murfi. Rinne sé staidéar ag Ecole Jacques Lecoq, Páras, agus tá obair déanta aige le hAmharclann na Mainistreach agus Amharclann na Péacóige, an Blue Raincoat Theatre Company agus Amharclann an Druid i measc go leor eile.
