This romantic comedy takes place in rural Ireland where an introverted farmer nearing his middle years is pursued by his neighbor who vows to have him at all costs. The play is poetic and funny and charming at the same time. John Patrick Shanley is the author of “Doubt” (Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award) and the feature film “Moonstruck” (Academy Award). The New York Times said “Mr. Shanley’s lyrical writing…gives consistent pleasure.” It is the perfect play to celebrate the autumn in Cape May.
