Martin McDonagh’s The Lonesome West Opens August 6

The Keegan Theatre closes out its record-breaking 19th season with Martin McDonagh’s brutally funny dark comedy, THE LONESOME WEST. Set in the tiny Irish backwater of Leenane, warring brothers Valene and Coleman live to torment each other, baiting and brawling over every petty grievance, from would-be girlfriends to cheap potato chips. Only Father Welsh, the local parish priest, will try to save them before their sibling rivalry explodes into a hilarious and brutal finish.
