Inishfree might seem like a quaint Irish town, but fierce evangelist Thomas Magill knows better. He knows that jovial Dwain Flynn is a miserable drunk; that Timmy O’Leary enslaves his lovely mother; and that sweet Mrs Cleary is a blasphemous flirt.
It is down to Thomas, with God on his shoulder, to save this sinful place. But the townsfolk are not listening. An angel is misbehaving and a barking dog will not be silenced. Just how far will Thomas go in his quest for salvation?
Enda Walsh’s seductive play returns home to the Granary Theatre, eighteen years after it first premiered in 1999. Presented by American company Resolve Productions, MISTERMAN is an examination of a young man’s descent into religious mania in small-town Ireland. A terrifying portrait of innocence turned toxic, that dares you not to look away, this is a production not to be missed.
