The Lieutenant of Inishmore

by Martin McDonagh

Where and When

McAulay Studio, Hong Kong Arts
25 – 28 February 2009 (8pm)

Blurb

A potent mix of horror and hilarity inhabited by louts and lunatics

The Lieutenant of Inishmore is a blood-splattered and highly entertaining farce by Martin McDonagh, the playwright behind The Pillowman and The Beauty Queen of Lenane, who recently won the Golden Globe and BAFTA awards for his screenplay of In Bruges.

The show revolves around Padraic, a man’s who’s fighting for a free Ireland all on his own, and his beloved cat, Wee Thomas. When Padraic receives word that his Wee Thomas is “doing poorly”, he rushes home to his native island of Inishmore, setting off a chain reaction that will have heads rolling . . . literally.

The Lieutenant of Inishmore was first produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company in London in 2001, where it won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy. It then transferred to Broadway in 2006, where it was nominated for multiple Tony awards, including Best Play, Best Actor, and Best Director. The New York Times said that The Lieutenant of Inishmore was “appallingly entertaining” and “enlightening”. CurtainUp said: “No one with a taste for the purely electrifying should miss this audaciously ironic political play”.
