And where else would you find all this happening, but in the middle of an actual field, amid the lush grasslands of south Co Limerick. 

Audiences attending In the Middle of the Fields can expect a unique atmospheric experience that harks back to the theatre fit-up tradition of the 1940s ands 1950s, but with  a vivid, contemporary staging.

The evocative story centres around a young widow who displays a strong, independent spirit in running her farm. An encounter one night with a neighbouring farmer becomes emotionally charged and unsettling,  posing provocative questions about past passions in a shifting and surprising story that promises to leave you captivated.   

“I want the audience to have an adventure as they return to live performance,” says Sheehy. “An atmospheric and dramatic encounter in magical surroundings. And I want them to enjoy the power of a great, rural story “In the Middle of the Fields.”


This story is a joyous testimony to what survives, our love, our truth, the heart itself, breaking… beating – Playwright Frank McGuinness
