WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Martin McDonagh's play is not an anti-terrorist play, but a satire of the nature of terrorism which centers on "Mad Padraic" Osbourne, a first lieutenant in the Irish National Liberation Army (INLA), a group that splintered from the IRA in the 1970's owing to the IRA's "overly moderate" outlook on the situation in the North. Nothing is sacred to Padraic except his cat, Wee Thomas, and freeing Northern Ireland from the oppressive rule of England. When he learns that Wee Thomas is "doing poorly," he rushes home to the Aran Island of Inishmore, only to find that his beloved friend has been murdered. The resulting action blends the comic precision of a Feydeau farce with the non-apologetic graphic violence of a Tarantino flick, as Padraic contends with Mairead, a 16-year-old girl (who is crazy about him and can blind cows with a popgun from 60 yards), her brother Davey (who rides his mother's pink bicycle), Padraic's eccentric father Donny, and three fellow INLA members who are none-too-happy with Padraic.
