The Lonesome West by Martin McDonagh returns for 10 performances only! In 2018, under the direction of The Everyman’s Artistic Director Julie Kelleher, McDonagh’s vicious comedy was a hit with audiences and critics alike and scored a nomination in the Best Supporting Actor category for John McCarthy at the Irish Times Theatre Awards.
Martin McDonagh is well known by now as an Oscar-nominated writer for screen and as Olivier Award-winning writer for stage. The third play in his smash hit Leenane Trilogy, The Lonesome West is everything you would expect of his black comedy: it will make you laugh when you really really shouldn’t. With explosive moments and the darkest humour, it tells the story of two feuding bachelor brothers Valene and Coleman and attempts to civilise them by despairing local priest Fr. Welsh, and his devoted sidekick Girleen.
The Everyman is proud to continue our tradition of producing top-quality theatre and delighted to reunite the same cast and creative team for this must-see revival of McDonagh’s modern Irish classic.
