The Lieutenant of Inishmore

Apr 4, 2008 - Apr 13, 2008

By Martin McDonagh

Iowa Premiere Production

Co-Sponsored by Iles Funeral Homes & Nexus Executive Women’s Alliance

April 4-13, 2008

Lauded as “Monty Python meets Quentin Tarantino,” this wild black comedy opens with the brutal murder of Wee Thomas on a lonely road on the island of Inishmore. Never mind that Wee Thomas is a cat. The real problem is “Mad Padriac,” the feline’s owner and a militant in the Irish Liberation Army. Padriac loves his cat more than life itself, he’s mad…and someone is going to pay! In the tradition of great Irish Storytellers, McDonagh again (“The Pillowman,” “The Beauty Queen of Leenane”) weaves a gleeful and gory tale that has left audiences worldwide gasping, howling, and buzzing with excitement.
