The Lieutenant of Inishmore - 2006 - Broadway


On a lonely road on the island of Inishmore, someone killed an Irish Liberation Army enforcer's cat. He'll want to know who when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland. He loves his cat more than life itself ... and someone is going to pay.

A macabre masterpiece of the deepest of dark black comedy, this fascinating play combines the hysterical absurdity of classic farce with the stunningly violent aesthetic of filmmakers like Scorsese and Tarantino. It's a muscular, high-octane show packed with gorgeous gore, amazing special effects and a battered, beautiful heart.


Running Time: Two hours and 5 minutes with one intermission
