Vintage Players presents “Outside Mullingar” by John Patrick Shanley at Oddfellows Playhouse on April 12 and 13. In an engaging romantic comedy, the award-winning author of “Doubt” and “Moonstruck” turns to his Irish roots. This funny and moving play spans five years in the lives of long-time rural neighbors as they negotiate family, farming, life, death, and romance.

The cast includes Nat Holmes, Linda Kaskel, Gerry Matthews, and Jane McMillan. The production is directed by Carolyn Kirsch, assisted by Ellie Howard. Lighting is by Tate Burmeister. Tom Cushing provides Irish musical interludes.
