The Lieutenant Of Inishmore

by Martin McDonagh

Directed by Paul Campion

Read the Sardines magazine’s review of this show

Psychotic IRA terrorist Mad Padraic only cares about one thing more than Irish independence and that’s his beloved cat, Wee

Thomas. So when Padraic learns that Wee Thomas has been killed, someone’s going to pay. Big time. And when a group of hitmen arrive to assassinate Padraic, the body count goes into overdrive…

McDonagh’s brilliantly outrageous comedy serves up gore, guns and gags in generous portions from some of the most hilariously stupid characters ever seen on a stage. Imagine Father Ted meeting Quentin Tarantino round at Monty Python’s place and you get the general idea.

If you like your humour blacker than a Connemara peat bog, you’ll want to catch what is one of the 21st century’s greatest, most improbable comedies, and a merciless satire on the ultimate futility of terrorism.
