The new play from Patrick Shanley, Outside Mullingar, covers some familiar themes of love, family, old age, and the ups and downs that come with the combination of the three.

Recent seasons have seen a dependable stream of first-rate Irish plays making their way to Broadway and off. The newest hails not from the old country but from Bronx-born scribe John Patrick Shanley.
