You may never look at life in quite the same way again
Following the sellout success of ‘The Man In The Woman’s Shoes,’ Mikel Murfi returns with a new one-man show, coming to Whiddy Island as part of the West Cork Fit-Up Theatre Festival 2019..
Late in his life, Pat Farnon, a cobbler and allround contented man, embarks on a journey he had not quite planned and finds that every twist in the road can bring its own surprises.
Written and performed by Mikel Murfi ‘I Hear You and Rejoice’ is a second collaboration between Sligo County Council Arts Service, The Hawk’s Well Theatre Sligo, and Mikel Murfi. It was created for the Bealtaine Festival 2016.
