A Skull in Connemara
By Martin McDonagh
Directed by M. Craig Getting and Kathryn MacMillan
January 13 - February 13, 2011

Leenane is a small Irish town with a small Catholic cemetery – too small. Widower Mick Dowd is hired each fall to disinter old bones to make room for the freshly departed, and this year's crop threatens to bring to the surface the long hidden secrets of the living. Irish writer Martin McDonagh, beloved for the gleeful madness of the 2007 Lantern hit The Lonesome West and the Oscar-nominated film In Bruges, is the mind behind this raucous, wonderfully unsettling comedy about death and dirt.

"A champion laugh-getter!" –KYW Newsradio

"A rare opportunity to see this work by Ireland's hottest young playwright/filmmaker." –The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Bizarrely moving." –WRTI

"A great oul night!" –IrishPhiladelphia.com

"McDonagh's gleeful excesses are here in abundance. Full of hilarious digressions and non sequiturs that shock and amuse in equal measure." –Philadelphia City Paper

"If you favor dark humor and a few chills, [the] Lantern's well-crafted production delivers both in spades." –Philadelphia Weekly

A Skull in Connemara is part of the 2013 Philadelphia Irish Theatre Festival
