“Outside Mullingar” production @ Carriage House Theater
Feb 5 @ 7:30 pm

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan Civic Theatre Guild will present “Outside Mullingar” at the Carriage House Theater.

The show was a 2014 Tony nominee for Best Play. In 2015, it became one of the most performed plays in American theater.

Organizers of the play, which is directed by Gene Davis, said it is rated G and is suitable for general audiences.

Performances are set for Jan. 22-24, Jan. 29-31 and Feb. 4-6. Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows are planned for 7:30 p.m. Sunday matinees will begin at 2 p.m.

This suspenseful mind-bender will have you laughing one minute and on the edge of your seat the next.
