Here right now: a clip of the new Broadway play 'Outside Mullingar'

There have been rave reviews all round since the opening on Broadway this week of author John Patrick Shanley's new play, "Outside Mullingar", which has Will and Grace star, Grace Messing, in one of the lead roles.

The play producers, The Manhattan Theatre Club have posted a clip online - and we're liking what we're seeing!

Also appearing in the play are the Cavan-born actor, Brían F. O'Byrne (Mick Moynihan, in Love Hate), and Dearbhla Molloy.

The playwright, John Patrick Shanley's father was from Killucan, and the playwright visited this area last year as he worked on the script.

Shanley won an Oscar in 1988 for the Best Original Screenplay, "Moonstruck".  In 2005, he won a Pulitzer Prize and a Tony award for his play "Doubt: A Parable".

The play is running at the Samuel J Friedman Theatre, 261 West 47th Street, New York.
