Following his critically-acclaimed one-man shows The Man in the Woman’s Shoes (IAC, 2015) and I Hear You and Rejoice (IAC, 2018) comes the premiere of Mikel Murfi’s The Mysterious Case of Kitsy Rainey, completing the masterpiece trilogy chronicling his beloved Sligo through the wanderings of small town cobbler Pat Farnon. Each story stands on its own, or take the journey with Pat and see all three.

The Mysterious Case of Kitsy Rainey
Having married in his later years, Pat finally decides to “lift the lid” on the life lived by his Kitsy prior to their union, all while facing down his own reckoning. Tender, heartfelt, and joyously funny, The Mysterious Case of Kitsy Rainey completes Pat Farnon’s journey in a most unexpected way.

The Man in the Woman's Shoes
Meet Pat... Just outside of town, cobbler Pat Farnon lives on his own, contentedly aging in the cottage in which he was reared. Join him as he walks the five miles into his “metropolis,” populated with no-necked water diviners, sporting savants, loudmouths and preachers.

I Hear You and Rejoice
Meet Kitsy... “Once in a lifetime, a woman the likes of Kitsy comes along and when she does, the universe has to expand to accommodate her.” From the football field to the chapel floor, Kitsy always has the final word. By turns moving and hilarious, her friends and neighbors celebrate the impact Kitsy has made on her community.
