The Lieutenant of Inishmore by Martin McDonagh
5th – 7th March 2020
From the writer of In Bruges and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri.
‘Come on in ahead for yourselves, I’m just in the middle of shooting me Dad.’
Who knocked ‘Mad Padraic’s’ cat over on a lonely road on the island of Inshmore and was it an accident? He’ll want to know when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland: he loves his cat more than life itself.
‘Martin McDonagh’s play is a hugely enjoyable black satire on the mindset that has led to cycles of violence and generations of misery in Ireland… this is a terrific play about a serious subject that’s touched with a Monty Pythonesque insanity.’
