Roscommon Arts Centre Presents A SKULL IN CONNEMARA, Feb 4-5
From the acclaimed writer and director of In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths, Martin McDonagh's 'A Skull in Connemara' comes to Roscommon Arts Centre today 4th and Wednesday 5th February.
Described as 'The Quentin Tarantino of the Stage' by critics, Martin McDonagh's plays including 'The Beauty Queen of Leenane' and 'The Cripple of Inishmaan' are firm favourites with Roscommon audiences. This play some to Roscommon as part of a nationwide tour and straight after a stint in the Gaiety Theatre, Dublin.
For one week each autumn, Mick Dowd is hired to disinter the bones in his local cemetery, making way for new arrivals. As the time approaches for him to dig up those of his late wife, strange rumours regarding his own involvement in her sudden death begin to resurface.
Part of 'The Leenane Trilogy', 'A Skull in Connemara' is one of McDonagh's funniest plays and with Decadent's inimitable depiction, this production will have you laughing out loud, squirming in your seats and possibly avoiding graveyards!
Tickets are priced at €18/€16 and can be purchased through Roscommon Arts Centre's box office on 090 6625824 or online at www.roscommonartscentre.ie.
