Thomas Magill is Misterman.
The self-appointed guardian of Inishfree’s moral welfare. Thomas lives inside his own head but today that safe place is beginning to doubt itself. Outside, the people need to be watched though. Someone’s got to keep their eyes peeled for the bad. But when all the words have stopped inside his head, will Inishfree and Thomas survive Thomas’s judgement day?
Misterman is a terrific study of religious mania, loneliness and longing. It really rocks. The Arts Desk

Under Alex Howarth’s assured direction, the intensity of the play is magnified. Warren Taylor’s coruscating and devastating performance is both sympathetic and horrifying…Thomas’s inner world is brought to life brilliantly through Rachel Sampley’s design. From starry beauty and graceful doves to the looming characters as Thomas voices their words – their faces are never clear as their sins and threats are what Thomas remembers – Sampley’s mesmerising projections and lighting, alongside inspired sound and music, add another facet to Thomas’s fracturing mind and create something extraordinary. ★★★★ Fairy Powered Productions
