Lieutenant of Inishmore

Closed September 3, 2006

I am pleased to report that 'Lieutenant' remains as scalpel-edged as when I saw it in London three years ago.

Ben Brantley, New York Times

Why See Lieutenant of Inishmore?

Award-winning playwright Martin McDonagh's (The Pillowman, The Beauty Queen of Leenane) scorchingly black comedy, The Lieutenant of Inishmore is set in 1993 in County Galway on the rocky island of Inishmore, off the coast of Ireland. Padraic is a terrorist with no feeling for those he blows up, but has an obsessive attachment to Thomas, his beloved cat.

But someone has killed poor wee Thomas. Was it an accident or an execution? Either way, the death must be concealed before 'Mad Padraic' returns from a stint of torture and bombing. Otherwise the recriminations will be horrifying.
