The Man in the Woman’s Shoes is a one man theatre show written and performed by Mikel Murfi.

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.

The show was created with the support of the Sligo County Council Arts Service and The Hawk’s Well Theatre, Sligo as part of the Bealtaine Festival for Creativity in older people. The Man In The Woman’s Shoes has toured extensively in Ireland since 2012. It has played twice in NYC at the Irish Arts Centre in Manhattan. It ran for three weeks at The Tricycle Theatre, London in 2016 to full houses.
