The Lonesome West

by Martin McDonagh
directed by Mark A. Rhea

2 brothers + 1 inheritance = lots of misbehaving. In this dark Irish comedy written by the Academy Award Winning Writer/Director of IN BRUGES, 2 brothers in rural Ireland squabble over the inheritance left by their recently deceased father. Also, there’s a rumor about town that one of them may have murdered the father over a haircut related insult. The local parish priest and a young girl from the community, also their bootleg whiskey supplier, attempt to keep the brothers from quarreling with hilarious results.

“Both hilarious and viscerally exciting.”
– Daily Telegraph
“One of the great events of the contemporary Irish theatre.”  
– Irish Times
“An exhilaratingly original voice…”
– The New York Times
