Award-winning play to benefit Sligo Rovers

The Man in the Woman’s Shoes was written by and stars Sligo Rovers fan Mikel Murfi.

It was originally commissioned by the Hawk’s Well Theatre in Sligo with Sligo County Council Arts Service for the Bealtaine Festival in 2012 and such was its success it went on to tour extensively to venues around Ireland.

The New York Times credits Murfi with “astonishing acting” and rates it as a high-top performance after a month run in the New York.

The Evening Standard described it as “modern classic in the making”.

It won the Stewart Parker BBC Radio Drama Award, was nominated for Best New Play in the Irish Times Theatre Awards and won a Zebby award (Irish Writers Guild) for best theatre script.

This award-winning play has toured extensively and returns to Ireland to sold-out audiences and more terrific receptions.

Murfi is a former student of Summerhill College and has agreed to perform the play as a benefit for the #bitored which the club are extremely grateful for.

Priced at €25, it is the perfect night out pre-Christmas with friends and family.
