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. Mammy's full of a cold and the cat is awfully depressed. An old rub down with Vick and a packet of Jammie Dodgers should sort the situation out there. Outside, the people need to be watched though. What was Eamonn Moran up to in his garage? 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?
Landmark Productions revival of Misterman, with Cillian Murphy taking the role of Thomas, played at St. Ann's Warehouse in New York until 21 December 2011 and transferred to the National Theatre in April 2012.

The issues Misterman explores are common... but Murphy injects them with an incredible urgency. He is never less than captivating – his standing ovation was well deservedSteve Dinneen
