Regarded as, “A miniature masterpiece” by The Times of London, The Man in Woman’s Shoes follows Pat Farnon as he walks to town and back again. It is a beautifully observed piece, utterly simple and Murfi’s “astonishing acting” has been widely praised. The show is funny, tender and at times downright daft.
