The Lieutenant of Inishmore
THE LIEUTENANT of INISHMORE
By Martin McDonagh
Directed by Mark Routhier
*Central Florida Premiere
The Lieutenant of Inishmore is a feared Irish terrorist who has no qualms of torturing, mutilating and murdering his enemies. The one life he does value is that of his beloved black cat, Wee Thomas. After Wee Thomas is found with a crushed skull, a heartbroken Mad Padraic becomes hell-bent on finding the person responsible and the vividly gruesome violence and carnage that ensues makes for an extremely dark, yet hilarious comedy that explores the absurdity of political violence.
“Inishmore” is a cheerfully bizarre play, funny as only the Irish can be, and not for the faint of heart.”-Hollywood Reporter
*Note-NO animals will be harmed in the making of this play.
FUN FACT: Beth Marshall’s cat Onxy is working on her audition of the gender-bending role of Wee Thomas. No casting promises have been made.
Also cool to note, this will be director Mark Routhier’s first play to direct back in O-Town since his time as Director of PlayFest at Orlando Shakes.
