Katie Cunningham and Richard Price star in “Outside Mullingar” with the Clarence Brown Theatre in downtown Knoxville. Filled with beautiful language and set in the rural hills of Ireland, “Outside Mullingar” is a romantic comedy that reminds us that — early or late — love always arrives on time. Farmers Anthony and Rosemary are clueless when it comes to love. To find it, they will have to overcome a land feud, family rivalries, and their own fears about romance. Photo: Elizabeth Aaron.
