Watch Cillian Murphy in the mesmerising Misterman at home

Watch Cillian Murphy’s electric turn on stage in the Landmark Productions and Galway International Arts Festival production of Misterman, coming directly to people’s homes in March.

Misterman received huge critical and popular acclaim when it premiered at the Black Box Theatre as part of GIAF 2011.

The play marked Cillian Murphy’s return to the stage and he gave a tour-de-force performance in this dark, dangerous and blisteringly funny tale of one man and his judgement day.

The play, directed by the award winning Enda Walsh, collaborating with Cillian Murphy once again, went on tour after its runaway success in Galway.

It showcased at the National Theatre in London, as well as in St Ann’s Warehouse in New York. It was in London where the National Theatre at Home performance of this play was filmed.

Now audiences will have another chance to see Misterman when it is streamed on NT at Home from March 14.

Producers Anne Clarke of Landmark Productions and Paul Fahy of Galway International Arts Festival said, “Misterman was a special production for many reasons.”

“We will always remember the stunned silence at the end of the first preview in the Black Box Theatre in Galway, which was broken by a thunderous roar and the sound of an entire audience leaping to their feet as one.”

“The show signalled the start of a hugely significant relationship for both companies with the work of Enda Walsh, one of the greatest writers working today.”

“Since then, Landmark and GIAF have co-produced the world premieres of Walsh’s major plays Ballyturk, Arlington and Medicine,”

“We are thrilled that audiences around the world will now have the opportunity to see Cillian’s extraordinary performance in the show that started it all, thanks to NT at Home.”
