The Lonesome West
By Martin McDonagh
Directed by David O'Connor
September 14 - October 14, 2007
Red-hot playwright Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman, The Beauty Queen of Leenane) offers up the savagely funny comedy, The Lonesome West. In the tiny Irish backwater of Leenane, warring brothers Valene and Coleman live to torment each other, baiting and brawling over every petty grievance. Only Father Welsh, the local parish priest, will try to save them before their sibling rivalry explodes into a hilarious and brutal finish.
