The Man In The Woman's Shoes (2017)

Mon 5 Jun 2017 – Sat 1 Jul 2017

A one man show written and performed by Mikel Murfi


Mikel Murfi’s funny, tender and at times downright daft one-man show returns to the Tricycle for a strictly limited run, following an acclaimed string of sold-out performances in April 2016.

Pope John Paul I is not long dead, autumn is closing in and Pat Farnon has ‘some business’ to do in town. Set in Ireland in October 1978, The Man In The Woman’s Shoes follows the life of Pat Farnon as he walks to town and back again.

This beautifully observed piece has toured across the USA and Ireland, including a sell-out run at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin.
