BWW Review: THE LIEUTENANT OF INISHMORE, Noel Coward Theatre Photo BWW Review: THE LIEUTENANT OF INISHMORE, Noel Coward Theatre
by Nicole Ackman - Jul 5, 2018

I didn't know it was possible for a play this bloody to be so funny. Martin McDonagh's The Lieutenant of Inishmore is a dark comedy about terrorism and violence set in Ireland in 1993. When Irish National Liberation Army member Padraic finds out his beloved cat is poorly, he immediately heads home only to find the cat already dead and violence ensues. It's an enthusiastically gory piece that isn't for the faint of heart.
