Thursday 30th April

A one man show written and performed by Mikel Murfi.

We catch up with Pat once more as he embarks on a journey he had not quite planned and finds that every twist in the road can bring its own surprises. Late in his life, Pat Farnon, a cobbler and all-round contented man, marries the redoubtable Kitsy Rainey. It’s a match made in heaven, in more ways than one. Written and performed by Mikel Murfi, I Hear You and Rejoice is a tender and joy filled account of a most unlikely marriage. You may never look at life in quite the same way again.
