 In MiddleTown is a remarkable new solo show, commissioned and produced by the Gate Theatre and written and performed by Irish Times Theatre Award winner Mikel Murfi, renowned for his critically acclaimed plays The Man in the Woman’s Shoes and I Hear Your Rejoice. Performed outdoors on the back of a specially adapted truck, and to strictly limited audiences. In MiddleTown will tour towns and communities across Ireland this summer, including the beautiful setting of Dunamaise Arts Centre’s momentary venue at Emo Court and Parklands.

In MiddleTown is a brilliantly imaginative, gentle reflection on ‘living in the middle’, and the search for solitude, simplicity, and the things that make us truly happy. It’s a magical, timely, and heartfelt piece for the times we live in. This summer, find yourself In MiddleTown.

This event is presented in partnership with the Office of Public Works. Dunamaise Arts Centre extends grateful thanks to them and the management and staff of Emo Court and Parklands.
