Monday Night in a Country Town

The theme for the Rehearsed Readings this year is:

DIRECTOR’S CHOICE COMEDIES

and the season kicks off with Tom O’Brien’s “Monday Night in a Country Town”
Monday Night in a Country Town

Monday Night In A Country Town is a moving parody of Oirish rural drama. When the neighbour’s husband dies, Old Mikey decides it’s high time that his son took a wife and joined the two farms. But Young Mikey isn’t the sort to go courting and when his father insists he woo the lovely widow, Young Mikey is faced with a choice that ultimately leads to tragedy.
