About this show

A strikingly original black comedy by Academy Award-winning, Olivier Award-winning and Tony Award-nominated playwright Martin McDonagh, The Lieutenant of Inishmore is set in 1993 on a rocky island in County Galway. Padraic, a hard-boiled terrorist is lured home by the news that his beloved cat, Wee Thomas, is doing poorly. When Padraic discovers the cat has been murdered, he initiates a cycle of revenge-killing that threatens everyone in his path. This graphic satire on violence is directed by Wilson Milam, who received a Tony Award nomination for his work on the 2006 Broadway production.
