The Naked Stage is proud to present this Tony Award nominated comedy by the author of The Pillowman and The Lieutenant of Inishmore. In a remote Irish village as comical as it is dangerous, brothers Valene and Colman Connor share an undying hostility for their mundane lives - especially each other. From potato chips to plastic saints, nothing is sacred and everything is an excuse for violence. Only Father Welsh, the young and depressive priest, tries to reconcile the pair before their petty squabbles spiral out of control. But could God himself stop this latter-day Cain and Abel from their vicious carnage? Hilariously volatile and morbidly engrossing, Martin McDonagh's depiction of the rural "murder capital of Ireland" will have you laughing until it hurts.
