THE LIEUTENANT OF INISHMORE

a drama by Martin McDonagh
Directed by David R. Gammons
OCT 26 - NOV 16/2008

A terrorist… and his cat?

Blazingly funny and bitterly blood-curdling. A brazen and unapologetic farce. This award-winning comedy tells of a ruthless Irish Republican Army enforcer, “Mad” Padraic, and the one thing he loves more than anything else in the world . . . his little black cat, Wee Thomas. But someone has killed Wee Thomas. Was it an accident or an execution? Whoever is responsible had better fess up, or Padraic’s reign of terror will come crashing down on the small Irish island of Inishmore. What ensues is a hilariously bloody, choking farce, quintessential to McDonagh, the playwright who gave us the critically acclaimed The Pillowman.

“Appallingly entertaining…gleeful, gruesome…Mr. McDonagh raises the carnage factor to a level that rivals Quentin Tarantino’s.”
THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Playgoing doesn’t get any better than this”
